El Realet Ridge
<< None < None | The Bernia Ridge > The Toix Ridge >>
Strike uphill through light brush to the base of the ridge. </br>1) Follow the narrowing and steepening arete (3 - red dots) to the summit of El Realet One (548m).</br>2) Continue along the awesome knife-edge ridge (4 c) past the occasional bolt - very exposed - to a midway summit. </br>3) From the midway summit, scrambling along the ridge gains a short step down, or jump (3 ) to easier ground that rises to the summit of El Realet Two (799m) - also marked on maps as Penya dels Castellets. </br>4) From the summit of El Realet Two, descend easily until a bolted abseil station is encountered as the ground starts to steepen. </br>5) Abseil 30m to less steep ground and scramble down to a col. </br>6) Continue along the exposed, castellated ridge (3 ) to a bolted abseil station. </br>7) Abseil 20m to a col.</br>8) Walk up the broad ridge to the summit of El Realet Three.</br>9) From the summit of El Realet Three, retrace your steps back along the ridge for 70m to a white patch of gravel.</br>10) Go down a ramp leftwards a short distance to the start of a vegetated gully. Don't go down the gully, instead, zig-zag down the vegetated face and pick up a vague path that again heads leftwards. </br>11) Follow the vague path for about 100m and locate an abseil point on the small ridge to the right (next to a pine tree). </br>12) Make a 25m abseil to ledges, and follow another vague path past some orange dots to another abseil point, just before the V-notch. </br>13) Either downclimb to the V-notch (4a ) or abseil to easy ground just below the V-notch. </br>14) Scramble down the path to easier ground and terraces, before heading across terraces to a low ridge on the right above a house. Follow the ridge to the road and pick-up point.
