Lleida Climbs describes a selected number of sport climbs in the province of Lleida to the west of Barcelona and stretching into the Pyrenees. This area of Spain is recognised as one of the finest sport climbing venues in Europe. In total 21 separate rock climbing areas are documented detailing over 2,700 routes across a wide range of grades.
The style of climbing covered is huge ranging from; sandstone bouldering to the south of Lleida; single and multi-pitch sport routes up to 250m long on excellent limestone rock; to the granite slabs and steep faces in the Pyrenees. Some of the well-known areas covered by this guidebook are El Cogul, Terradets, Santa Linya, Tartareu, Vilanova de Mela, and Cavallers.
At the start of each area there is a location map along with the GPS co-ordinates for the parking areas. All the routes are illustrated on full colour photo-topos with French sport grades used throughout.
