About the activity
We will make the descent of the canyon called "tres en Ratlla" (also called "Canal Roja"). It is a very funny and varied dry canyon that is located in the beautiful Sierra de Montserrat close to Barcelona.
There are more than 10 rappels, some of which are over 25 meters high. It is a very progressive activity, starting with short rappels and, as we’ll progress, the rappels are becoming higher. It’s a perfect activity to improve your technique if you’ve already done some rappelling before.
Above all, the surroundings are wonderful and this activity offers a different way of getting to know the “Sierra de Montserrat” and its extraordinary geological bubbly shapes.
We will start with a nice hike of 1h15 (going up) to get to the starting point of the canyon, and after the descent we’ll have about 20 more minutes of walking to get back to the cars.
