Jumped on the wrong route. At first thought it was the start of a long multi pitch at 5+. After finding out it was this route and it was graded 6a I was very shocked. No way a 6a as I have climbed a few 6bs with an easier crux. I would go down with a hard 6a+ or 6b at least.

No Stars from me! Unprotected 6a moves to the third bolt. Then it was unclear which way to tackle the steep wall. Poor choice of route for a warm up!

Missing bolt a bit scary, then rested further up when confused whether to follow the chalk to nowhere, or the bolt to the right (go right - there aren't any bolts left!)

One bolt missing and a crux that is more like 6b+/6c climbing
Cheese Monkey - Lead dog - 26/Mar/13 with Vienna
A rude awakening as the first route of the trip! Hard moves right to join with Mas Potencia near the top. Long run out from 3rd to 4th bolt. Agree with comments about undergrading. Was supposed to be warm up but got so flash pumped I fell off the next route!

bolt missing, would be a bad fall.

riddle - Lead O/S - 18/Feb/12
I suspect there may be a new route to the left of this, as there are 4 lines of bolts rather than the 3 in the book. I attempted the far left line thinking it was Superpotencia, but it felt way harder (at least 6b) and joined up with another line of bolts at the top. Also beware the runout up to bolt 3 (I think, maybe 4) - deck potential if your belayer is not paying close attention

ferdia - Lead dog - 05/Apr/10 with Marcus
Couldn't work it out the first time up. I ended up traversing onto the finish of the more obvious 6a+ finish to the right but I found the holds on the way down and did it properly, a really nice climb.

More like 6b I reckon! Brilliant! Lead, then didn't finish last two clips-boo hoo. Top roped after. Should have finished off the lead. Good to return to and redpoint.
andrea83 - 25/Mar/10 with Hamish
This is possibly 6b, and not all that well bolted - you're pretty much guaranteed to end up with your leg behind the rope in the crack, and not too far above a ledge so the belayer can't give slack in the event of a fall.
Ciro - Lead O/S - 25/Mar/10
Managed to get to the mid point of the climb but could not solve the top bit.

liaml89 - TR RP - 24/Feb/10 with Tom Hull
Certainly felt harder than 6a, and not a good choice for a warm up first route of the day
cem - Lead dog - 14/Dec/09 with Graham Dolman
I found it pretty hard for 6a. Definitely not a good warm-up. I on-sighted a couple of 6b's, some 6a+'s and 6a's (all 6a's which I tried in El Chorro), and found this harder than any of these routes. As others said, line is not very logical, joining the adjacent 6a+ to the right, rather than continuing up the obvious corner to the left. The traverse to the 6a+ around second-last bolt is slightly overhanging, on poor footholds and a little pumpy. Solid 6b for me.
