The Encodina Sector climbing area is located 2.5 km before you reach the Ordino Arcalís ski resort from Andorra la Vella.
It has 13 climbing routes with difficulties ranging from 4+ to 6c+ (medium-high). It is a high mountain climbing area (at an altitude of 1,850 metres) with a north-easterly orientation and the rock is limestone-schist with a little lichen. The type of climbing is face climbing and there are two large cracks. Due to its exposed position and height, it is recommended to climb it in spring and summer.
To reach it you begin by crossing the Encodina Plateau to the picnic table area, then follow the signposts to the river. Cross the river and after a few metres, before reaching a grazing pasture, turn right along a well-signposted path that will take you to the foot of the first of the routes.
The walking route starts in the Encodina Plateau at GPS position 42° 37' 30.9"N, 1° 31' 40.8"E.
