We went to Montgrony for a hot summer day. It is a beautiful climbing spot and an old sanctuary dating back to the 9th century.

Now it is more of a tourist and climbing destination, with a lovely restaurant and recently renovated hostel at the base. The view is stunning with Pedraforca in the background (right corner of the pic below), and the climbing seems good too, although it is mainly south-facing.

We went to a North face a little bit lower down the valley, with less views, but more shade. Climbing is mainly hard, in the high 6s and lots of 7s range. Most pictures by the master, Chris Glennie!
