Quebrada de Rurec, Via Monttrek. It was reported that Spanish climbers Eloi Callado and César Pedrocchi established what was perhaps the first wall route in the canyon of the Quebrada de Rurec in the summer of 1997. Over 13 days, the two climbers put up Via Monttrek (F6c A4-, 750m). The area is also known as Catedrals de Rurec and described as having “awesome potential” for big rock routes.
