On a route that I am pretty sure is left of La Que Faltava. It is a multipitch, great quality rock, and probably a mellow 5.10 overall.

A topo can purchased from rocktopo.com It cost about $7. It is well written. The topo is available in English.

Here is a direct link. If it is broken do a Google search on Rocktopo and Gorros.

A great website and a great group of people that can help with your climbing experience in Spain is climbinspain.com. I contacted them and was very pleased with their help. The two guys that run the site, Par Lindholm and Pere Cuyas speak very good English and are very helpful. I recommend that if you plan to climb in the Catalonia (near Barcelona) area that you check out the website and contact them. Without their help I believe I would have wasted a few days just trying to find my way around. It was great to learn more about the area and culture.
