Terradets - Paret de les Bruixes

Terradets is a very impressive gorge in the Serra del Montsec 40km or so North of Balaguer. Amongst the many big walls is the single pitch sport crag, Paret de les Bruixes. A very steep overhanging wall of tightly knitted tufas, it gives superb, albeit hard climbing, that requires good stamina. Grade 7b upwards is the focus here. There a few "easier" 6b to 7a routes, but are now so polished as result of being used as a warm up, that they are not worth a visit in their own right. The crag gets the sun in the afternoon, how soon depends on the steepness of the route you are trying! Many of the routes have their name written on a glued on pebbles at the bottom. An interesting ethical dilemna as to whether to avoid the polish and use this as a foothold.
