El Navegador (Pitch 1) >>
The front of the pillar is fully-bolted and provides a long expedition. The descent is by abseil back down the line. 1) 6b+, 27m. A worthwhile pitch on its own. 2) 6a, 25m. This pitch can be tagged on to the first. 3) 6c, 20m. Move up the right-facing depression. 4) 4, 10m. Head easily left. 5) 6b+, 20m. Up to below the final wall. 6) 7a+, 20m. The final wall to the summit. © ROCKFAX

reccommend running pitches 1&2 together to avoid an uncomfortable stance (and pitch 2 is 15m of 5+). Our 67m rope got us down pitch 3 ok. Top pitch only 6c if hard section is avoided.

Left out the last pitch as it is badly bolted and hard! Preceding pitches are absolutely beautiful though. P1 6b+ Lead (1 rest), P2 6a Second O/S, P3 6c Lead O/S, P4 4 Second O/S, P5 6b+ Lead O/S

Great climbing. Missed out the last pitch due to claims of “bad bolting” though the bolts looked new and shiny on the last pitch. Led the 35m 6c pitch (not 20m as Rockfax claimed). A 70m rope is required for abbing from this route between lower offs. The 6c pitch is the longest and there is no intermediate lower off.
Will Hunt - AltLd O/S - 30/Mar/10 with Sean Jacobs

1st pitch is the crux pitch. pitch 3 is 35m. Rockfax's accuracy is dredfull and quite frankly dangerous when it comes to pitch lengths! take a 70m rope if you dont want to rap off 1 bolt.

Made the mistake of going up whilst windy. We got blown to hell! and backed off just before the final face. Stunning exposure!
