Sant Llorenç de Montgai and Camarasa
Sant Llorenç de Montgai belongs to the municipality of Camarasa, just 50 minutes from Lleida. Camarasa is well-known for its spectacular scenery and for being the gateway to the Pre-Pyrenees. Its mountains are the first ones that visitors see as they head towards the Pyrenees from the Lleida Plain. They include areas for both sporting and classical rock-climbing.
Popularity of the zone
In most of its sectors, there is shade until 2 pm. The exception is the Solárium, where there is sun all day. This is a zone which is recommended for climbing in the morning, in autumn, winter, spring and summer.
Easily accessible. There are routes at the road level and also within a 45-minute walk, in the case of the Solárium sector. It is necessary to follow an iron way to reach the Fashion and Selva sectors. It is easy to find a parking place near the rock-climbing sectors.
Vantage points and emblematic locations
The Cova de Disblia, at Sant Llorenç de Montgai, is a very emblematic grotto with climbing routes of great quality. It is also very near the area where people can leave their cars.
