Rodellar, Sierra de Guara

South of the Pyrenees, in Aragon, nestles a remarkable and authentic massif: the Sierra de Guara.

All the climbing sectors and almost all the canyons we like to do are accessible on foot (or by boat) and the hassles of everyday life are left to the parking lot, like the car!

RODELLAR, SIERRA DE GUARA

RODELLAR, a remarkable and authentic massif

Rodellar is not a tourist site like the others. This small village, built on a rocky promontory, marks the end of a winding and narrow road that crosses the Sierra de Guara. From there, it will be necessary to move on foot or on horseback as at the time or by mountain bike in a more modern way. This is what gives this place its greatest charm.

Avoid taking the car to go on business, there is our will and our ambition. All the climbing sectors and almost all the canyons we like to do are accessible on foot (or by boat) and the hassles of everyday life are left in the car park, like the car!

OUR ACTIVITIES IN RODELLAR

Discover here all the activities we offer for this destination.
To make a reservation, go to the reservation module above.

Climbing half day/full day

The atmosphere of the village of Rodellar encourages relaxation and letting go. Everything is then only a question of choosing the sector, then the route and finally the mind focuses on the very essence of climbing: the movement.

Rodellar is known worldwide for its small columns. But the other climbing styles are not to be outdone and all take place in a fabulous setting. 

Rodellar, in the heart of Le Mascun, the site's main climbing area

  • walking shoes (or sneakers)
  • clothing suitable for sports activities
  • a small backpack with a water bottle and sunscreen
  • harness
  • helmet
  • belay system
  • rope

We offer two types of sessions:

Ihalf-day climbing initiation: it's the discovery of the activity where we learn the basics of safety and make our first climbs and descents in top-rope.
> Price: 45€/person

Climbing improvement: Do you already know how to tie your figure-of-eight knot and regularly top-rope climb and would you like to take the lead in climbing? We accompany you for a day on this transition. Or you are already climbing independently in the lead and want to progress whether in tactics (managing a route, reading, etc.), technique (climbing on slopes, on columns, landing knees and putting on lolottes, etc.), the mind (visualization, anxiety management, breathing, etc.) or certain manipulations, we put our experience at your service to accompany you!
> Price: 75€/person

Whether for initiation or improvement, join us on the next outing!

Half day : 

  • From 6 years old
  • No minimum technical level

Daytime : 

  • From 10 years old
  • Technical level: novice to experienced
Climbing initiation half day :

Canyoning half day/full day

Each canyon offers the chance for a different journey. Turquoise water basins, cramps, siphons, monstrous overhangs… Shapes, colors, vegetation, everything unfolds at a frantic pace often going well beyond what we had imagined. Surprise is followed by enthusiasm, then by amazement.

Rodellar and its surroundings

  • walking shoes (or sneakers)
  • a liter of water and a picnic for day trips
  • harness
  • helmet
  • neoprene wetsuits
  • neoprene socks if necessary
  • rope
  • backpack

A large majority of our canyons are at the start or near Rodellar and it is on these that we focus.

Half-day discovery canyon:
To give a taste of adventure without the physical and long parameter of certain day canyons. This type of canyon is ideal for discovering the activity with the family. The Petit Mascun canyon is suitable for children from 8 years old. Example of a canyon: Petit Mascun
> Price: 45€/person

Canyon adventure day:
Adapted to the discovery of the activity, these canyons are rather aquatic and playful. By the approaches which are in themselves beautiful hikes and the length of the routes, they already represent a memorable adventure. Example of a canyon: Balces, Barrasil, Peonera
> Price: 60€/person

Sports canyon day:
Long and enduring, these canyons require very good physical condition and are aimed at already experienced practitioners. Example of canyon: Mascun Superior, Otin, Gorges Negras
> Price: 90€/person

  • From the age of 8
  • Do not be afraid of water, better to know how to swim (but not mandatory)
  • Good physical shape
  • Technical level: novice to experienced

We offer three levels and formats of canyons (details here) :

Canyon discovery half day :
€/person
50.00
Adventure canyon full day :
€/person
65.00
Sports canyon full day :
€/person
95.00

Multipitch full day

Rodellar is known worldwide for its small columns. But this site has some spectacular multi-pitch routes, most of the time on rocky peaks. The Cuca de Bellosta, emblem of the Mascun Superior and visible from La Fuente, is a possible route, as is the Picon d'O Cuervo, visible from the village of Rodellar. This monolith descends via a 60 m abseil in a spider's thread. Guaranteed sensations!

Sierra de Guara, Rodellar, Vadiello, Pena Predicadera or in Riglos

  • walking shoes (or sneakers)
  • clothing suitable for sports activities
  • a small backpack with a water bottle and sunscreen
  • harness
  • helmet
  • belay system
  • rope

The Tozal del Vero is the steep 400m wall that overlooks the Rio Vero and is home to a large number of majestic routes worthy of the Verdonesque limestone, in a much wilder setting. On the other hand, the level is much higher.

Still in Sierra de Guara, 1 hour from Rodellar is Vadiello and its conglomerate towers and the Pena Predicadera which also offer superb large initiation routes.

Finally, talking about conglomerate towers without mentioning Riglos would be a terrible oversight! World famous, these needles attract climbers from all over the world.

We can take you climbing on all these destinations. Do not hesitate to consult the Internships section for several days in a row and to contact us if you have any particular wishes.

  • From 12 years old
  • Good physical condition
  • Technical level: 5c minimum sometimes more depending on the routes
Multipitch full day :
€/group (1 to 4 people)
320.00

Next releases: see the booking module or contact us if there are no planned outings.

Via ferrata half day

The Via Ferrata is an aerial course laid out using metal bars and cables to facilitate the ascent of a rock wall and make it accessible to all. It is a practice halfway between hiking and climbing and an excellent way to apprehend emptiness and verticality.

Rodellar, in the heart of Mascun, on the Spur of the Virgin

  • walking shoes (or sneakers)
  • clothing suitable for sports activities
  • a small backpack with a water bottle and sunscreen
  • harness
  • Via Ferrata lanyards with absorber
  • helmet

The Via Ferrata is an aerial course laid out using metal bars and cables to facilitate the ascent of a rock wall and make it accessible to all. It is a practice halfway between hiking and climbing and an excellent way to apprehend emptiness and verticality.

In Rodellar, the Via Ferrata is located on the Spur of the Virgin. The pretty approach path from Rodellar, the old mule track, will take you to the bottom of the Mascun gorges to pass at the foot of climbing sectors, each more overhanging than the other. The Via Ferrata, although technically affordable, gains height and allows access to aerial and spectacular sections giving a breathtaking view of the Mascun Supérieur and its Citadel.

Join us on the next outing!

  • From the age of 8
  • No minimum technical level
  • Do not (too) be dizzy

Caroline Minvielle

CLIMBING AND CANYONING INSTRUCTOR (DE)


Passionate climber, I officially started climbing at the age of 6. The exterior and the mineral correspond to my ultimate aspirations. The playground is endless and the rock always has new subtleties to submit and puzzles to decode. I practice outdoor climbing in all its forms at a sustained level: from bouldering to multi-pitch in adventure terrain.

On the canyon side, my father, Pierre Minvielle, introduced me to it at a very young age around Rodellar, the place of his finest explorations. He gave me a taste for adventure and discovery and above all passed on his love for the Sierra de Guara.

Trained as an engineer, I decided to venture into the world of teaching and the transmission of knowledge by becoming a climbing and canyoning instructor in order to be able to share this passion that drives me and help those who wish to achieve their dreams.

Maxime Poirier

CLIMBING AND CANYONING INSTRUCTOR (DE)


I grew up far from the mountains, on an island in the middle of the Pacific and if my first ascents were those of coconut trees, I became passionate about climbing when I returned to France. Touch of everything, globetrotter and passionate about outdoor activities on all elements, I became a fan of thrilling sports such as highline, base-jump and canyoning.

For me, the mountains and these activities restore to us this capacity for admiration and wonder that modern existence can so easily evacuate. Live fully the happiness of the moment, the renunciation of living for tomorrow because today is enough.

My meeting with Caro will have finally sealed my destiny, here I am a climber, in love with the Vercors and the Sierra de Guara, ready to share my passion with those who wish.
