Terradets

By: Andreas Bindhammer & Klaus Fengler
Country: Spain, Region: Catalonia, Town: Terradets

The southern runoffs of the Pyrenees offer an enormous potential for sports climbing - a drive from Barcellona westwards convinces impressively. Balaguer, just north of Lleida, is home to important crags such as St. Llorenc de Montgai and Camarasa and also Terradets which, with its recently developed sector Les Bruixes, offers some of the best sports climbing in Spain. The sector slants leftwards and is characterised by steeply overhanging stamina climbing up tufas, pockets and... tufas once again. Resistencia pura!

GETTING THERE

From Barcellona take the motorway AP 2 – E 90 to Lleida/Lerida, from here continue on the C13 to Balaguer. Shortly after Balaguer turn left off the main road for Tremp. Follow the C13 for circa 40 km to reach the Pas de Terradets. Turn off right just before the first tunnel and take this old road to the dam. Park in the curve before the dam or on the left immediately after this. From the dam walk up the iron pylons to overcome the wall which coasts the road. Then continue upwards along the obvious path in circa 10 minutes to the crag.

THE CLIMBING

Steep overhanging tufa climbing.

FOOD AND ACCOMODATION

Continue up the valley towards Tremp to reach Cellers. The Alberg Refugi Cellers is located in the old train station next to the main road and this is the local climbing bar with cheap accommodation for climbers (Tel. +34 973 252209 or. +34 666 407 992, www.promoturpallars.com). Otherwise consider the more luxurious Hotel Terradets, located closer to Tremp and directly on the lakeside (Tel. +34 973 651120, www.hotelterradets.com). Further accommodation can be found in both Balaguer or Tremp, camping in Camarasa, St. Llorenc de Montgai and Talarn, just north of Tremp.
