Lleida Climbs 2nd Edition!


Stop press: we are pleased to announce the release of the second edition of Lleida Climbs!
The second edition features 424 pages — 88 more than the first book— and lists almost 50% more routes. Many of these are situated on newly developed sectors in zones such as Camarasa, Alòs de Balaguer and Abella de la Conca.
We would like to point out that proceeds from the first guidebook — both from advertising revenue and sales of the book itself — have played an important role in financing development of many of the new sectors, and would like to extend our sincere thanks to all our sponsors and customers.

Lleida Climbs, 2a. edició !!
Últimes notícies: tenim el plaer d'anunciar-vos que acaba de sortir a la venda la segona edició de la guia Lleida Climbs !

  2. Hi Seb,
    It depends where you are. We only received the guide from the printer this week so it will probably take a few days to work through to the outlets. Let me know where you are based and I'll tell you the easiest way to get hold of a copy.
    Of course, if you're in Spain you could always order online from Desnivel.com — they should be able to start dispatching books by Monday.
    Pete.

  4. I found a supplier in the UK, cordee.co.uk, we don't visit lleida til Christmas so hopefully the book will arrive here in good time. Thanks, and can't wait to get out there.

  6. Glad you got sorted Seb.
    Lleida is a superb climbing area — you'll have a blast.

  7. Cheers guys, I'm looking for somewhere very basic and cheap to stay around Tremp. I don't suppose you could recommend anywhere please? Hostel style dorms would be more than adequate. Thanks.

  8. I've just put some more links on the 'Accommodation' page of this blog.
    The choice and price depends mostly on how many people will be in your group. For four people or more, renting a rural house or cottage is probably the most cost efficient, whereas for climbers traveling alone, hotels, refugis, etc., will probably work out cheaper.

  9. If we mainly climb 5a-c and have a 3-5 days, I'm assuming that it'd probably be best to stick to a single area. Would you recommend getting the Lleida or Tarragona guide book?

    1. Yes, for that length of time you're probably better sticking to a small group of cliffs in just one of the areas. If this is a first trip I recommend basing yourselves somewhere near the zones of La Mussara, Mont-ral, La Riba and Arbolí in Tarragona province, where you'll find plenty in the grade-range you've specified.
      Pete.

    1. Hi Ross,

      If you're driving you'll most likely go through Lleida capital.

      If that's the case then call in at Decathlon, they should have the book.

      Cheers,

      Pete.

  12. Hi Stefan,

    We left a few copies of the new edition in Camping Organyà, which is 15-20 minutes north of Oliana.

    Bakery 'Rosa Serra' in Artesa de Segre (fantastic sweet and savoury products!) also has the new guide.

    Enjoy your stay in Catalunya.

    Regards,

    Pete.

  13. PS. I forgot: also available in the bar 'El Portal' in Organyå — closer than the campsite.
