Abella de la Conca is a picturesque hamlet in the Catalan pre-Pyrenees with lots of technical wall and slab climbing possibilities, high quality rock, a beautiful remote landscape and amazing views over the valley. It’s without a doubt one of the best places to climb I have discovered so far and it doesn’t see many visitors.
The hamlet is very small. The only accommodation that is available is the Eco-refugi (it’s self-catering, there is no supermarket, no bars or restaurants, and the refugi only accepts cash payments).
We climbed at the following sectors:
– Sector Esglesia (10 minutes walk from the village – recommendable routes: El deu de cosas petits 6b)
– Sector Ferrata (15-20 minutes walk from the village – recommendable routes: Dessechement Cutanée 6a+, Massa en Medved 6c)
