Amistades Pelirrojas a la Roc d’en Sola, Perles

Publié le |


In the Oliana valley, at Coll de Nargo, a small road leads to the hamlet of Perles and more precisely to the incredible limestone cliff of Roc d'en Sola. A neighbor of Putes Mosques, the Amistades Pelirrojas route climbs a superb, almost vertical slab with 4 pitches of sustained 6a climbing. Airy and varied, it takes advantage of the wild and peaceful atmosphere of Alt Urgell.

Itinerary description

Hiking to the start 15'

Take the signposted path upwards opposite the village entrance. Climb gently towards the Roc d'en Sola, which is clearly visible. When you reach the base (characteristic roof and orange slab), leave the path to reach the foot of the tracks. The trail starts under shrubs at the base of the roof, the 1st point shared with Putes Mosques.


Length 1 (20m, V+/6a)

The start is worth a 6a with leaky holds and little for the hands. Then a diagonal traverse to cut the ridge and exit on a steeper ramp with good holds to the R1 belay at the foot of the large slab.
Length 2 (35m, 6a+)

Climb vertically, following the leftmost points. Sustained, fine climbing, before a slightly more delicate step to exit next to a shrub. Then continue on to reach a pretty dihedral that's always sustained until you reach the R2 belay above the left corner of the roof. A magnificent pitch!
Length 3 (25m, 6a)

Magnificent again! Climb the dihedral in opposition, pass higher up on the slab and then return to the dihedral. Airy, sustained length on excellent rock.
Length 4 (20m, 6a)

A pretty technical step just above the belay. Then exit by zigzagging to the right under a small roof, then to the left to finish in an inclined dihedral (V). You can also go straight out above the roof, but it's harder (6a).


Either walk back down (not tried) or descend the ridge for 30m to the Mac Gregor a su Pesar and Alinyencs sport routes just below. We return a few meters from the start of the route.
