Via Ferrata Urquiza Olmo - Mont-rebei canyon
Come and enjoy the Mont-rebei canyon with the oldest via ferrata of the zone!
The canyon of Mont-Rebei includes the natural space through which the river Noguera Ribagorçana passes through the Montsec mountain range. The canyon separates Montsec de Ares (Catalonia) from Montsec de l'Estall (Aragon) and is the only great virgin canyon in Catalonia, since it is only crossed by a narrow bridle path partially excavated in the rock (1982) that follows the riverbed. The calcareous walls of the canyon reach 500 m in height and in some points of the river the width is only 20 m.
The canyon is a natural reserve where you could observe millinary holm oaks and animals such as lammergeyer, the vultures or the otters among others.
The Via Ferrata Urquiza Olmo is located in the Montsec de Ares, in the same zone as the ferrata Cast Urquiza Olmo and Feliz Navidad. The ferrata can be divided into 2 sections, the first is medium level and the second high difficulty. The final part of the canyon is characterized above all by its vertical sections.
The ferrata begins with an easy section that is overcome with the help of chains and a vertical wall equipped with staples. Then you will arrive at the foot of the Federica waterfall, normally dry, which you will have to climb to overcome the first part of the ferrata.
The second part begins with a vertical wall equipped with chains that forces us to work with arms. Later, you will find an aerial section, equipped only with chains. The last part of the ferrata and its most complicated section is after the guestbook and it is a collapsed roof.
Enjoy climbing in the vertical sections of the via ferrata Urquiza Olmo!
