The village of Morera de Monsant


The Sierra de Montsant comprises excellent climbing on high-quality conglomerate. In fact, Lynn Hill told me that this was her favorite climbing area in Spain. It's close to Siurana and mostly has one-pitch climbs.

Getting There 

From Reus, drive toward Cornudella de Montsant on C242 (the same approach as for Siurana.) From Cornudella, take TV7021 fro 8 km to Morera de Monsant. Take the right-hand fork through the village, turn right at the Place del Priorat, then the second right to "Carrer de la Banna" to its end, turn left, and park .
Approach: follow trails to Barrots

Delectable! You're gonna wish it'd never end. Strenuous climbing through the first few bolts opens up to perfect jug and two finger pocket pulling on an immaculate vertical face. Well deserving of the attention it receives....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
