The Petit Mascún is ideal for beginners to barranquismo. It is located in the Natural Park of the Canyons and Sierra de Guara, near the village of Rodellar, to some 35 minutes from the exit to Alquézar in the A-22.
Es un barranco sencillo and relatively little and always dangers when performed with care and with a basic knowledge of ravines. For him Petit Mascún flowing water from the upwelling of Mascún, where ends barranco Mascún Superior. We can see the flow from the village of Rodellar, but usually it takes a manageable flow. Late summer, if no rains that fed the upwelling, its low flow can cause you to lose interest and not worth doing.
Approach and return
We can make the barranco with a single vehicle, but if you do not want to walk 25 minutes from the end of barranco up our car, We need to carry two vehicles. One of them will leave it parked in the Camping Bridge, located a little before reaching the Rodellar and the other in the village leave. In both places the parking is complicated as there are very few places. In the village there is a pay parking and Florentino Bar has a way for customers to park. At the campsite we can ask if they let us park and take something when we finish the barranco.
Descenso del barranco:
Most barranco It is to walk by the river and a chaos of blocks that forces us to downclimbing on occasion. We can go looking for enlivening the descent jumps numbers there on the road. Keep an eye well the depth of the pools, it does not cover equally all outgoing sites that can hurt algú.
At one point there is a small rappel left hand next to a waterfall of about 3 metros de altura. This waterfall can downclimbing a little further back if you are skillful, but you have to gently drop since not cover anything. We just followed a small slide about 2 metros de altura. If little water runs may not drift well and if you are very strong need to be careful when falling since there is a drosaje front that can make us swallow water if we do not manage.
There are possibilities to avoid this rapel, but involve lost part of this bonito ravinethe.
From now on, It is technically easier. We can go investigating the nooks and crannies of the rocks to discover small caves behind waterfalls. There is a point where we may doubt on the right path. We will see a succession of small waterfalls and dubious projections. The easiest is to go to the wall on the left and down a hole to a small cave. Henceforth it is all quite evident..
Finished chaos block, We will play a while we walk along the river for softer ground. We pass under the bridge of the goats, from which we could walk to Rodellar Camping or the bridge if we needed it.
The final part of barranco, known as “Desfiladero” It is a narrow and deep zone will force us to swim for 5 minutos. It is best to relax and enjoy the views we have in this section, the final part meets the waters of the Alcanadre (Barrasil ravine and Gorgas Negras). Throughout this gorge we find numerous jumps of different heights we ourselves choose.
