SINSAT


The Quié de Sinsat is a mountain, not a crag. There is an immense amount of rock, much of it is on an impressive scale and a long way from the road. There is also plenty of good cragging to be had on the lower-cliffs - all within a more-manageable 20 minute walk of the car. Single-pitch sport is the most common style of climbing here, plus the odd multi-pitch offering. We have included a tiny selection of the longer routes on the upper cliffs. Many of the higher crags have restricted climbing in spring and early summer due to nesting birds-of-prey - consult the notice board in the car parks for any possible changes.
