Access to the place
Hiking to the start 1h à 1h30
Follow the yellow path along the riu del Valls at the bottom of the hill. You pass under the rocas Grossa and Dreta - a must! You can now see the canal between the 2. Continue for a short distance and turn left onto the path leading to Pujador del Puntalet (yellow and orange). There are a few passages to climb in III to reach the ridge (20′), then climb back up to the left (south) and head towards the summit as it rises, passing a small wood. You can see the passage between Roca Grossa and Dreta, where you need to get in.
Course 1h30 à 2h
The canyon is dry and consists of a series of 7 vertical abseils. All belays are equipped.
Once you've entered the channel between the 2 rocas, follow the increasingly narrow channel. You then have to unclimb 2 jumps to find the equipment for the 1st abseil (14m).
R1 takes you to the edge of the Grossa and the vertiginous descent of the next 5 abseils: 30m, 38m, 30m, 38m, 30m. No difficulty other than the rather airy atmosphere, 2 belays on the side of the wall, and one or two very narrow passages. The last of the 5 abseils takes us out of the channel on a huge bulge and the last 20m on a spider's thread.
The final abseil, R7, can be avoided by skirting around to the left, or you can descend the ramp a little to find it and finish on a 40-metre incline to quickly rejoin the bed of the riu del Valls.
Simply drive in the opposite direction to the parking lot.
