Montserrat - Sanchez Martinez
We got on one of the classics in Montserrat this w-end, the Sanchez Martinez on Pared de Diables. (view of Cavel Bernard above as seen from mid-climb). It is a beautiful 10 pitch climb with relatively few spots requiring serious aiding.
The climbing is very diverse, stating with a chimney below, becoming a crack climb on conglomerate, incredible as it sounds, changing into the "big roof", no need for El Cap here!
And finishing with a classic Montserrat slab, with nice 3 pitches of 6a. Beautiful views and not a bad walk-off make it for a perfect day! Big thanks to the participants (Renaud) and the logistic team (Silvia and David)!
