Paret dels Coloms has more than 30 single and multi-pitch sport routes and a trad route or two ascending incredible grey and orange limestone. The rock and its features are beautifully varied allowing for an interesting mix of routes up slabs, caves, tufas and overhangs, many with multiple styles on the same route. The right half of the wall is home to most of the more moderate routes, rated 5+ to 6a. The remainder of the routes are harder, some substancially so.

Clip the last bolt before the anchors with the bolt to your left. Continue up and right to the wild stemming finish. Continuing up and to the left is possible but much more diff...[more] Browse More Classics in International
