Abella de la Conca

Climbs 278 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 950m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
A crag of many facets thus suiting summer/winter activity according to temperature desired. Useful for avoidance of inversion cloud common in winter (along with Ager and Vilanova).

Sector El Congost is nearly 3km distant but most other sectors are set around the v picturesque village. Since initial presentation in LleidaClimbs the rock in this zone has seen much development, with many sectors and routes added; sector Voltor (1st to RHS of Mur Blau) is one such with 30 routes from 6b to 8a, useful for a winter visit with exposure full south. The arche sector has 13 routes from 6a+ to 8c+ and offers incredible overhanging features in the shade allowing you to climb all spring/summer and autumn. Canyon has 6 lines from 6c to 8c+ and each will test your resistance in the autumn and winter. Panorama,morral and font delas gottas are situated on the other side of the village and offer about 20 routes from 5 to 8a+ just of the car and you can climb all year (summer in morning, afternoon winter). The potential is immense but the climbing is demanding, technical butalways rewarding. if you like commercial crags and soft pass your way...but if you want amazing scenary, tranquility and testing climbing then this isyour place1

Further info: go to the house in the village main square opposite the fountain and ask for Nic or Ella, who are both active in route setting and equipping.

New Lleida climbs guidebook now out with all new sectors, http://www.lleidaclimbs.com/ For info on multipitch sports and semi equiped routes in Abella ask for Nick or Ella. eco Refugio opening on Village Square in March 2014
nicolas durand - 03/Dec/13
Abella is a great secluded destination in the north of Catalunya, 20min drive from Tremp, and about less than an hour from Lleida. The setting is just out of this world, absolutely gorgeous. The climbing is very diverse, from aesthetic limestone slabs to great overhanging walls and even rock arches. Not many people know about this place right now, but once all the new developments by Nicolas Durand et Company are revealed in the new Lleida guidebook, it will become a major destination.
