Description 

This small sector is made of small cliffs and giant boulders pilled upon each other forming a tall spire/tower. It hosts the awesome eponym 2 pitches route, as well as two much shorter and much less awesome ones about 5.6/5.7.

Getting There 

Walk along the cliff past Tot Grau, Roure, Primitiu, the impressive orange cliff of the Taronja sector and the two smaller sectors of La Proa and Espantaocells. From the trail, you will see a big free-standing spire. The approach takes about 10-15 min from the parking lot.

Pitch 1 (5.6): The first pitch is the middle one of the 3 routes on the Covallonga sector, and goes straight up to a ledge in between two trees and continues past that ledge (the anchors on that ledge are for the two other routes). The belay is located at the base of the steeper section of the spire, under and slighty right of a roof which looks like it has been carved into the rock. Very enjoyable climbing on strangely featured rock, even though most of the pitch is only about 5.4. 90 feet.Pitc...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
