My first climb in El Chorro - in Spain as a whole in fact. Really enjoyed it. I'm an HS/VS leader and this was a straightforward but slightly challenging lead for me.

good climb, only slabby thing i did there.

After El Povolorin turned out to have the harshest grading in Chorro and we felt completely sandbacked we came here to do some easy ticking in setting sun. I did Super Galleta first which tests you a lot more then this so this felt like a walk, I'd recommend doing these two routes in the other order. Still I almost fell off because I wasn't paying attention when I tried to jump onto one of the ledges. Relaxing.
