Climbing in Margalef

We were able to get a guidebook and beta from the Hostel and we headed to the rock.

First, I hiked all the way up to the white rock - not the routes, but awesome view of the dammed lake area:

The climbing was good to we stayed a 2nd day! (and there were some routefinding issues the prior day, compounded with guidebook finding issues, etc that it was much easier to stay)

We ended the day a bit early and headed down into Collbato where we were able to catch the local market.
The view from town:
