The south side of the Mascarat Gorge has two huge faces split by a ridge which runs down to the old road bridge. This ridge is the start of one of the more popular long routes in the area - Llobet/Bertomeu. The other routes are on the side walls and have complex approaches and descents. They are in an atmospheric setting and provide memorable adventures. Guidebook page 279.
