Coll Piqué au Coll de Nargo, Catalunya

Publié le |


Coll Piqué is a major sport climbing spot located on the great rocky spine overlooking the village of Coll de Nargo, in Alt Urgell. Dozens of routes, up to 35m, quite difficult on the whole and well equipped. South-east-facing, the routes are sheltered by vegetation and the area is very pleasant and easy to access. An excellent option for alternating after a long trip to the area, to the nearby Paret des Grau (on the other side of the Col Piqué) or to the nearby sectors of Perles or Oliana.

Coll Piqué

Technical summary

Access to the place

Go to the village of Coll de Nargo on the C14 between d'Oliana and Organya, under the Seu d'Urgell and Andorra. Enter the village, cross it and at the exit, level with an old bell tower, turn right towards Coll Piqué. Climb up, the asphalt becomes a track and you come to a small pass, between the Paret del Grau on the left and the sports areas on the right. Park here, next to a large rocky tooth (for the sectors on the left).

Course Les voies

Satisfactory equipment, even if some starts are exposed. Ratings were fairly accurate on the few routes we tried. Short session that day, in rest mode between 2 big routes.

Sanglas (L1, 22m, V+, n°13)

A slippery, awkward start. Easy dihedral then slab with good holds. A final step.

Estrella de dos partes 1 (28m, 6a+, 10 quickdraws, n°14)

Well equipped on the difficult passages. A physical start, then easier from point 4 to 7. The finale is physical and sustained, with a few loose holds.

Enric Crek (V+, 18m)

A fine warm-up route, the first to arrive in the sector, an arete with a 3/4 pitch. Good holds and good climbing.

Quinque Surf + Efectes Secundaris (6a+, 18m)

Start with a solid step on a bulge, then above the belay, a second slab-fine passage before the athletic but easy finish in a huge, opposing crack.

Miendomeda (6a+/6b, 20m)

A big passage at 2/3 with a recovery and a very fine exit, an athletic but not difficult finish.
