Montserrat North face
Montserrat has some of the best conglomerate rock in the world. You might be asking what is conglomerate. Basically, it’s a whole bunch of boulders, rocks, pebbles of various types (granite, limestone, quartz, shale etc.) stuck together by petrified mud. Sounds weird, and is even weirder to climb. This picture is of a very small section of the north walls in Montserrat. Montserrat is divided in the north and south sections. The north side offers 8 to 10 pitch “old school” routes on beautiful conglomerate.
