Gran Boveda (center) is Mascun's best cliff. The ...
This is the main area at Rodellar. It is a north south running canyon so all the walls basically face west and east. This offers the option of climbing in the sun or shade at any time of the year at any time of day. Though the main cliffs face east so it is best when one wants to climb in the shade.
The rock is highly featured. Blocking in places and tuffas in others, most routes are going to offer a combination of the two. There are sections of rock that just look like they should fall over and yet they end up yielding surprisingly solid rock, baffling to me.
The best routes start at about 7a (5.11+) and go as hard as you can pull. There are about 400 routes in the canyon and more still going in.
The area is quite crowded and it is not uncommon for there to be as many people at a cliff as there are routes, be prepared to wait to get on the classic lines no matter how hard you are climbing.
Drive to the end of the road in the small town of Rodellar and park or as close as you can get to the end of the road. Walk along the main street to where it is blocked by a building, hang a right down a stair case and another right on a rocky road. Walk around a sharp left hand bend till you come to another group of homes and a trail sign. Here the approaches vary for which cliff you are headed to. It only takes a few minutes to get to this point.

: ... : Gran Boveda Right
Coliseum is the central line of the Gran Boveda, splitting the massive cave with 40 meters of relentless jugs & tufas. The line is consistently steep, but a cornucopia of great holds provides passage at a (relatively) modest grade. The line follows a vague overhanging dihedral, & an intermittent finger crack in the back provides a few key holds, though most of the climbing is on good pockets & fins. There isn't really a distinct crux, though there is a long dash between rests at around 2/3's ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
