Some of the hardest climbing at Puig de Garrafa is on Sector Sombra - 'shade sector'. This is an extremely impressive area with numerous hard pitches, and one classic tufa climb. There are reports that the grades of the harder routes are very stiff!

An impressive and unlikely line at the grade. The tufa has a very steep start but is easier than it looks once you commit.

Chu, chu, chu..
The left-hand line on the rib gives a thoroughly nasty and desperate bit of climbing to reach the easier-angled rounded rib.

A welcome easier pitch up the rib to a lower-off well below the steep top section of the crag. The start is hard.

A very steep section of rock. The line is based on the upper edge of the huge orange recess.
