Summary

The quartzitic rock, although highly solid and hard, is heavily fractured. The equipped routes, although thoroughly cleaned, require moderate attention to prevent potential falls of blocks or slabs. You could find the "official" topo here.

Description

Penha Garcia is a rock climbing school in quartzite, where fissures and slats abound, requiring climbing on technical slabs, cracks, and athletic extra plummets. It is possible to climb multi-pitch here too. The height of the roads varies between 8 and 45 meters and the grades between III and 7c. “Placa das Tartarugas” is a slab sector with most routes.

Ĩt is a rural place with great views and nature, where it is possible to camp and meet the traditional Portuguese lifestyle, food, and culture.

Approach

A good place to park is close to the dam (google map coordinates 40.04559229833553, -7.014005700001631).
