Ok I'll be honest...a hold snapped on some very easy climbing and I fell so not technically onsight, however having led both crux pitches without falling and 99.9 percent of the rest of the route I dont want to write redpoint but whatever... Bloody amazing line the top pitch 6c+ is one of the best bits of climbing in el chorro, it is totally spectacular and is why I climb, it felt as hard as the 7a pitch though. The rockfax topo is wrong for this route, it goes 10m to the right of the line in the book via a great big tufa. There are no bolts where rockfax drew the line in the topo. This was confirmed by juan, owner of finca la campana and climbing guide in the area for 20 years.

Brilliant climbing on the third and fourth pitches, very crozzly rock! Very un-trafficked, which made a nice change. Unfortunately the whole experience was ruined slightly by being freezing in the wind!
