2011-07-29 La Mussara, Lo Raval & Isabel   Leave a comment

Early afternoon rain shower and low grey cloud cover over Mussara led us to think “Hmm, see what it’s like in the parking..” and it looked good enough to try a new sector for me and for Alvaro – Lo Raval.  The same ferrata descent for Isabel, the rock is dirty and the protection is old and rusty.  We warm up on a 5+, Rosa Encarnada that wasn’t easy… any novices coming here are in for a shock.  Alvaro onsights it and I flash it to an insistant chorus of bat chattering coming from neighbouring routes.  The sound angry little critters.  Next route is an onsight for me Polos De Gaseosa, 6a+ with a super tough start and interesting top section.  The 6b next to it (and the next easiest route) looks super thin uptop on a slab, so we recamp back to Isabel for onsights and flashes of Stupid Questions, 6a a nice route, then the roof problem of El Club Dels Dismitits, 6b+ and finally the grand Flor Del Desig, 6a+.  I suggest topping out and belaying from above to avoid the via ferrata, but alas not possible.  5 quick routes to prepare for tomorrow!

5+   6a+   6a   6b+   6a+
