Situated down the hill from the imposing towers of Paret del Castellet and Aran de Batistot is a smaller crag with just over a dozen climbs in the mid-grades. The fact that it is only two minutes from the car, and that the routes are fully-bolted, has ensured its popularity.

Start at the red 'no 8' and climb the sharp rib to easier ground then a good finish on the final tower. Solid at the grade.
