Barranco Buttresses
Home Up Segaria South Face Barranco Buttresses


At the foot of the far western end of the Segaria ridge lies a valley with a group of smaller crags, these make up the Segaria Barranco Buttresses. So far only parts of the Northern side of this valley have been developed although there is plenty of potential on the Southern side as well.


  • South facing with little shade, although some shade can be found just a few yards further down into the valley.
  • Mostly single pitch routes.
  • Trad routes, there are no bolts on any of these routes.
  • Most routes are at the easier end of the scale between Diff and VS.
  • These are very new routes and none of them have been climbed very often. All routes should be tackled with this in mind as there is still some loose rock.
  • 1/4 hour walk in, mostly level although some uphill as you approach the crags.


Barranco Buttress Guide - Sample Page


There is a PDF guide for the crags that make up the Barranco. This guide contains:

      All currently known routes
      Full colour topos
      Full approach details.

Please note, the guide is nearly 2Mb in size and will therefore take a while to download. The guide can be viewed in A4 but you may find that when you come to print it out it may be worth printing two pages per sheet.

I have produced a Google map of how to get to the Barranco from the AP7 motorway. The roads around Ondarra have changed a lot recently so check this out if you are at all interested in visiting these crags.

    It is worth viewing this in the hybrid mode. You can select this using the buttons at the top right of the image.
    The red lines represent the walk in, the blue lines the drive.
    The green lines represent the drive in to the Segaria South Face.
