"Finestra" is probably Margalef's best crag. With over 60 routes, from 5.11a to 5.14d (not to mention several open projects with proposed grades in the 5.15b-range) this crag has something for just about everyone. While famous for its unparalleled concentration of cutting edge routes, this cliff's high number of "moderates" are what keep the crowds coming back. This cliff has more than 10 high-quality 5.11's (including Magrana, one of the best routes at Margalef), around twenty 5.12s, and ten 5.13s.
From Margalef, follow the bridge East across the river towards the "Fonda Tres Pines" Hotel. Heads up for the tree that is literally in the middle of the road! Veer left after the tree, heading up a steep paved road signed for "Ermita Sant Salvador". Continue winding up this road, passing several crags on either side of the canyon. After ~1.8 KM, park at a fork in the road in any of the small pullouts. It looks like there might be a new parking lot going in here.

This continuous pumpfest culminates in a beautiful & perplexing curtain of small tufas. The first half is split by several good rests, but the final dash to the anchor is quite sustained.Begin up the easy flake. Mantle up, then make big moves to a stance below a small rooflet. Glorious tufa pulling leads to a good shake out left, then more tufas lead right to a smooth panel of brown stone. High-steps & pinches between diminishing tufas lead to the hidden clipping hold at the anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in International
