A fissure in the rock!

The Gorgonchon is unique in the Sierra de Guara. A curious hidden crack in the rock, where a narrow ravine appears with a mysterious atmosphere and some exclusive characteristics that the canyoner can enjoy.

The descent of the Gorgonchon is a classic of the sierra, which due to its brevity is usually combined with the descent of the Formiga.

In this ravine, siphons, rappels, steps in opposition, dark corridors, galleries and waterfalls are combined.

Its descent requires a certain technique, so it is not recommended for those people who are starting out in the activity.

Description of the activity

At the established departure time it will be necessary to be at the door of the office with your own vehicle to collect the material and meet the guide who will accompany us throughout the tour.
In the summer months, the car park will be accessed by a bus that leaves every morning from Alquezar to the Lecina car park!
Remember your swimsuit, food, water and sneakers!

From the office we will follow the guide’s car to the parking lot where the activity begins.

From there we made an approach march in swimsuits to the river.

Once in the water we will put on the neoprene and enjoy the descent!
