Led to the overhang moved and should have trusted the next hold was good but alas...... 2nd will have to do.

A relatively good climb with no particularly troubling moves, although some people in the group struggled on the mid section a little.

Wow! the veiw from the cave is breathtaking

Intimidating move out of the cave (would be better if that bolt was a bit higher)

At top of Escalera Arabe. Excellent. Tricky move around bulge, otherwise straight forward. Dog followed us miles from campsite to crag, ate our ham, drank our water then ran off.

The rock is so polished it looks like steel! The mid part of the climb over a little bulge is the crux, I tried it on lead and failed but managed to get up on a top rope. Either way my poor fingers still hurt!

actually climbed producto nacional to the base of the overhang and traversed into this, possibly slightly harder this way!
