PUIG DE GARRAFA


Puig de Garrafa is an extensive crag consisting of a number of buttresses spread across a wooded hillside. There are plenty of routes providing high-quality climbs across the grade range making it a good choice for groups of mixed abilities. Most climbing styles are catered for and the best include: long pocket walls, a number of steep tufa lines and some fine groove lines. Access is quick, and one of the crag's main benefits is that while shade can be found throughout the day you can also seek out varying levels of sun from late morning onwards.
