[Climber on El chupacabras, 2 kb]A dramatic pitch which makes up for its lack of length with some fine moves. Go easy with the large fragile flake, in fact give it a miss altogether! © ROCKFAX

Far easier than I recall from quick play last year. One hard technical traverse into the cave then pretty standard stuff to the top with good crimps.

Very powerful climbing with a technical traverse, fun. Don't worry about the flake, it's solid.
