Description

The prominent double peak of the Pedraforca soars above the stunning scenery of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park.

The upper ridge, called Pollegó Superior, rises to 2,506 meters, with the second ridge, called El Calderer, rising to 2,496 meters.

The unique shape of Pedraforca has made it one of the most emblematic mountains in the whole of Catalonia, along with the jagged peaks of Montserrat and the high mountain of Canigó.

Pedraforca is homed within the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park, located in the north of Catalonia close to the border with Andorra. The protected mountainous region stretches across the regions of Alt Urgell, Berguedá and Cerdanya.

The best way to conquer the summit is via the Coll del Verdet route, which offers spectacular views and technical terrain.

Scattered throughout the park are ravines, caves, grottos and chasms mostly made from limestone rock.

The rich and beautiful park is not only home to rugged mountains but wonderful wildlife. There are approximately 60 species of mammals thriving in the alpine landscape, from wolves and chamois to deer and wild boar, all on the move within the forest.

In order to join a group climb, participants must be 14 years old or above, have a good level of fitness, and be able to endure 5 hours of climbing over 9 kilometres.

About the guide

My father and grandfather taught me to love the mountains from a very young age. At 12, I did my first rappel...down the wall of the village church (the priest wasn't there). That's where it all started...

I'm passionate about nature, climbing, mountaineering and ski touring and have been calling the Lleida Pyrenees home for as long as I can remember.

As a UIMLA-mountain leader, I have led trips and expeditions in America (Peru, US and Canada), the Alps, the High Atlas and even Ladakh (Indian Himalaya) and Yamalia (Russian Arctic). Since 2014, I am in charge of snow and avalanche training at ACNA (Asociación Conocimiento Nieves y Aludes).

For me, guiding is not work: it is my passion. Each tour and expedition provides a new chance to discover and share what surrounds us. Respect for the environment, nature and local culture are at the basis of my philosophy of life, which I try to share with joy.

I made the trip with a friend. Ramon is a knowledgable guide, he supported us in every way possible before and during the hike. We were not only dazzled by the breathtaking views but also what we learned about biodiversity was a bonus. We loved this 3-day trip! Thanks Ramon!
