Hey all,

I'm travelling around europe at the moment and planning on hitting up rodellar pretty soon. I know it's going to be hot but I'm itching to get some climbing done so I'll probably be doing evening sessions.

I basically wanted to know if anyone has been there during summer and if there are enough people to go climbing with since I don't have a partner. Also, how are the approaches and will I need a car/scooter to get around from crag to crag?

PS: if you're thinking about going there during that time hit me up. I've got a full sport rack on me but unfortunately since I haven't climbed in a month I'm probably stuck back at leading 6a/6a+ but am happy to belay and top rope anything you want.

Cool man get psyched Rodellar is the shit the best climbing in the world I've done hands down. Rodellar is up in the mountains and is known as a summer crag. So you picked the right time to go. Any other time and you risk lots of seeping on the best walls and routes. As far as finding climbing partners, I was there end of April and there were a few other solo climbers. But my understanding is that summer is the peak season in rodellar and it will probably be packed with climbers. Id recommend staying at the hostel Kalandraka ( might be full but stay here if you can ends up being cheaper then the campgrounds.)this has the friendliest scene of any of the hangs around town. As far as approaches go, the main sectors ( gran boveda, la pisceneta, pince san rie, las ventanas)are easily accessed by foot from the town. There are some obscure areas that you actually access by boat. But you will have plenty to climb without. Hope this helps. Enjoy your time there and in Europe. Jack Sparrow

Rodellar is amazing! At that time it will be very hot in the sun and nice and cool down in the canyon in the shade. You'll have slim pickings for routes if you're only going to lead 6a. Get ready to project harder stuff. Stay at Kalandraka. It is heaven. adam brink

You will be able to find climbing partners and shade. I would add that at your climbing grade a nearby area, Rilos, would have more for you to climb. It has thousand foot towers of cobblestone limestone. Mostly sport routes. That may be more difficult to find partners though. But, you can easily reach it by train.

With a full rack, you could head up into the Pyrenees. Tons of trad climbing. Best to secure a partner first.
