Uphill

The west face of Sa Gubia ranks as one of the more impressive walls in Europe. It is around 100m tall at its highest point, overhangs for most of its length and is covered in some magnificent rock formations. To date, the wall has been developed by Yannick Courtes and Francois Thirion with several long, fully-bolted routes - an incredible achievement, especially when you consider the approach walk! Little is known about most of these routes beyond their name and pitch grades, although it is reasonable to assume that they will be brilliant and substantial challenges.
