Lovely route, great climbing with good rests and no hard moves. Okay for 7b if you're fit. Finished as per the local guide, up and left from the rockfax finish, given 7b+ but not much extra difficulty.

AJM 10/Feb/14 Lead β

Retroflash, although I got more from watching people on it than I remembered from years previously. Excellent route, big stamina pitch with a good smattering of rests. Did the proper finish going up the ramp out left rather than finishing at the Havana club lower off.

1st 7b and on my 40th. 2nd go, left hand finish.

Outstanding climbing which I had to fight for through the technical headwall after the excellent pumpy tufa and roof climbing done.

my first route in chorro, brutally hungover and tired after a night of m&s wine in gatwick, felt like throwing up numerous times.

Stunning pitch, no hard moves - just about pacing yourself between rests.

Retro-flash. Last year had a good crack and got to the coral high up. This time felt totally cruising all the way. Good bridge rest at lip of the little roof. Best route on frontales!!!
