Sandwiched between the rock climbing Meccas of the Sella valley and the majestic Puig Campana is a serrated ridge of marathon proportions - Castellets. The ridge is composed of a multitude of summits linked by dizzying, and at times difficult knife-edge arÍtes. It presents only a few faces of unbroken rock though, hence the possibilities for climbing are relatively limited compared to the amount of rock on show. Described here is one small section on the cleanest walls which are towards the northeastern end of the ridge. The routes on this section are mostly fully bolted but there are a few trad routes up the cracks mostly with lower-offs. Also covered in this chapter is the magnificent traverse of the first section of the ridge, the El Realet Ridge. A full guide for this area can be found as a smart phone topo guide by Compass West please search 'Castellets Climbing Topo' in the App Store or Google Play. This guide covers all of the lower tiers and five of the upper towers. The north side of the ridge will be added later.
