Saturday, 3 March

Lleida is the Mecca for hard core route climbing where you within a good hour can find crags like; Siurana, Margalef, Oliana, Santa Linya and Terradets etc. When it comes to bouldering, El Cogul is the biggest area but lately several more spots have been found. Guntram Jörg reports about several nice sand stone areas and yesterday he did La Bestia, 8B in Cervia.
