RECONCO


Reconco is a fine crag with a good range of middle grade routes on lovely pocketed rock; it is a pity the place isn't bigger. It is beautifully situated on a hillside above a rural valley and is easy to find. The only slight drawback is its distance from the main accommodation spots but using the motorways will get you here surprisingly quickly. It makes a good alternative to the popular areas at Toix and Sella with a similar grade range. Most of the routes are long single pitches, although there are a few two pitch routes as well. All the routes are clean and well-equipped but the rock has many small pockets and is a bit hard on the skin. Route finding shouldn't be a problem as the names and grades are stamped on tags on many of the first bolts and there are occasional names painted on the rock.
