Alos de Balaguer - El Raco

A small crag in a beautiful location halfway between Alos de Balaguera and the Noguera Pallaresa dam. The crag faces south, which is too hot in summer, and in winter, the sun does not get high enough over the narrow valley to warm the  rock. This leaves early spring and late autumn as the best months. The crag is  broken in places, however it does have some good routes.
