Santa Linya is famous for the huge cave sector, containing more routes of 9a and above than the rest of the crags around Lleida put together (and that includes Oliana! ) The entry grade here is 7b+, so little more than a tourist attraction for this team 😦
Happily it has a sister crag a couple of km down the road which has more reasonable fare (mainly 6b to 7c – it’s all relative! ). These are on excellent featured rock at a slightly overhanging angle. I managed a couple of 7as and most of a 7a+, so the most productive day’s cragging yet.
The day was almost ruined by a close encounter with a Pero Loco, which only just failed to rip the back off my trousers (and didn’t miss the contents by much! ) so we repaired to a quirky bar for beer and some really good soup.
This morning we awoke to temperatures of 4C in the van and 1C outside, but a bit of sunshine soon changes things for the better. Here’s Helen breakfasting in our football pitch camping spot beneath the crag
