Sport Climbing in Montsant

Even though Montsant is situated only 30min drive from Siurana the style and rock is something totally different. Instead of limestone Montsant offers a long line of conglomerate cliffs which are easy to spot while driving in the area. The cliffs offer long endurance problems featuring pockets and pebbles and also some short and powerful lines too. As the cliffs are facing mainly south it's best to visit Montsant from Autumn to Spring. During summer early mornings or late afternoon can also work. Approaches are rather steep and take generally around 20-40min and you can find the parking locations and GPS trails from the crag pages. No more getting lost while navigating to the routes! Please note that it's forbidden to climb at some crags during 1.1-15.7 due to bird nesting. Details can be found from the crag pages. Topos of Siurana & Montsant are done by Toni Arbones, who was one of the first climbers discovering Siurana in the 90's and since then he has been relentlessly bolting new routes for all of us to enjoy.
