FORADÀ


This is a fine crag which has a mega north-facing wall which gives some of the best steep climbing around. The crag is a must for people into steep grade 7s, but it also has some attractive easier routes on the slabby southern side. Pride of place for the routes has to be Sector Super Heroes - a wonderful steep wall of soaring, overhanging pocket-lines. The other sectors on the north side are much the same as Super Heroes except on a smaller scale. The southern side is a totally different proposition with routes at a much friendlier angle and in a beautiful setting with magnificent views. Two sectors have the odd trad route, the rest routes are well bolted with good lower-offs. A 60m route is useful for Sectors Super Heroes and Elecciones.
