It's been a long time since our last trip to Montserrat, but bad weather and bird closures have taken us away for a while. Last weekend, we headed to Torrent del Migdia area with the aim of climbing a couple of routes up to the magnificent Montgròs, one of the best viewpoints of the mountain.
The Montgròs is the huge chunk of rock in the centre of the picture
We were two climbing parties, so we choosed two routes closer enough one to another in terms of take some nice pictures: Retrobolting and Griviola Bella.
Retrobolting is mainly a face climbing while Griviola Bella follows a pronunded groove.
