Suspended high above the small village of Gombren in the foothills of the Spanish Pyrenees, Montgrony offers some of the best single pitch tufa-sport-climbs anywhere. Montgrony itself is a small sanctuary for religious retreat. The chapel and associated accommodation are built into the cliffs around which the main climbing crags are located. The crags are at around an altitude of 1300m and the views are stunning.
For teams looking for quality grades 6ís there is enough here for a short week and it would be ideal to visit as part of a trip to other crags in Catalunya such as Monserrat or the superb crags of the Costa Daurada. For teams climbing in the 7th and 8th grade then the supply of fantastic lines will be unlikely to outstrip demand. However you should ensure that you arrive in good shape since the routes are long and sustained and will rapidly show up.
