Crag features

L'Elefant at 1156m is the highest peak overlooking the Monastery. Also included in this crag are the smaller peaks beside L'Elefant.

L'Elefant is generally approached by walking up from the Monastery. It can also be approached from the Funicular de Sant Joan by starting on the path to Sant Jeroni and taking right fork to traverse accross to Sant Benet area, or by climbing up one of the lower crags such as l'Elefantet.

Parking is at the Monastery (cost Euro 6 in 2014).

Climbs are mostly multipitch.

At Montserrat, protection varies particularly on multipitch climbs. Some climbs have modern bolts, whilst others have old bolts ("burins") and some climbs are not equipped at all. Distance between bolts varies by climb and by difficulty with easy sections generally being runout. Climbs with cracks often require trad gear such as cams to protect the crack sections. The faces are harder to protect with trad gear but sometimes offer pockets for cams and large pebbles for slings.

Volunteer to moderate L'Elefant
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
