Summary

The climbing in Alòs is very varied

Description

The climbing in Alòs is very varied, ranging from the pleasant, 'friendly' routes of sectors Cal Cari and El Rachel Segre to the fiercely steep tufts of El Balcó del Segre and the impressively long and adventurous pitches on the recently developed walls of Barranc de Sant Marti, tucked away in a deep valley above the village. Most sectors face south or southwest and are sheltered from cold northerly winds, factors making winter the ideal time to climb here.

This delightful stretch of the Segre valley near the village of Alòs de Balaguer offers a beautiful setting in which to climb. The river meanders through groves of poplar trees, overlooked by steep cliffs and the ruins of Castell de Rubió (an important Arabic stronghold in medieval Spain) while the village itself is extremely pleasant.
