St Llorenç de Munt

Since Ren came over to visit, we bought our first spanish guidebook, 100 best climbs in Cataluña, borrowed some maps and talked to Spanish climbers (thanks, Jorge!) - all that with the objective to go out and explore the neighboring gardens of pleasure.

The first stop, one hour from Barna, has been the park of St Llorenc de Munt, on the north side of Montserrat and Matadepera village. Only 10 min walk from the car, these towers greeted us:

And offered first experiences on conglomerate before even starting with Montserrat.

The route, La que Faltaba on the Pared de la Falconera, is only 4 pitches long, but provides for very nice views and exposure. The road makes for some noise - but that is the price to pay for the 10 min approach and 5 min walk-off...
