Ager - Barranc de Grillons

A large wall in a beautiful setting high above the Ager valley. Barranc de Grillons has mostly technical wall climbing on positive holds, including a few low grade routes. It faces due south and so can get very hot. Bolting is good. An excellent place for the winter sun.
