Geocache Description:


Racons de Montserrat #07 - Coll de Porc

CATALÀ
La muntanya de Montserrat és troba entre les comarques de l'Anoia, el Bages i el Baix Llobregat. És segons la tradició, la muntanya més important i misteriosa de Catalunya. En aquesta sèrie de catxés, "Racons de Montserrat", us volem mostrar diferents indrets de la muntanya, alguns de ben coneguts i d'altres que no ho són tant.

Coll de Porc

Citant la guia de Montserrat: "El coll de Porc és una cruïlla de camins, un indret clàssic entre els clàssics, una delícia dels amants de la solitud. En destaca la font de l'Esllavissada i la balma de coll de Porc, ideal per a fer-hi vivac.". Situat a 974 metres d'alçada, per una banda hi tenim el refugi i el camí que va al Montgròs, entre d'altres, i per l'altra un camí que baixa ràpidament fins a arribar al GR que ens permet anar a Santa Cecília o a la Cadireta i la Foradada.
Per arribar-hi podeu fer-ho indistintament des d'ambdós llocs, des del refugi és una mitja hora i des de Santa Cecília uns 45 minuts.

Coll de Porc (Porc Pass)

Quoting the Montserrat guide: "The Porc pass is a paths junction, a very typical place, a gift for the solitude lovers. The Esllavissada (landslide) fountain and the small cave of the Porc pass are outstanding from this excursion. It is perfect for an overnight stay.". Located at 974m above the sea, in one side there is the refuge and the path to the Montgròs, among others, and in the other one there is a path that descends until arriving to the GR that allows us to go to Santa Cecília or to the "Cadireta" and the "Foradada".
You can go both from the refuge and from Santa Cecília. From the former it's about 30 minutes and from the last about 45 minutes. walk.
