Espantaocells** 6a
[Ian on Espantaocells 6a, TV Crags, La Mussura, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
Easy for the grade with sustained and extremely pleasant climbing. There is an intermediate lower-off at the top of the detached pillar. The route continues above this for another 10m on steep ground but with good holds - 6b. © ROCKFAX

Good varied climbing. The comment about the rockfall explains the smooth blank slab at the top! It's been rebolted, and can be climbed via the left edge and a traverse.

First pitch only. First 6a of the trip that actually felt like a 6a. I'd give it a couple of stars due to the varied and interesting climbing.
Glyn Davidson - Lead O/S - 04/Apr/10 with Rob Greaves

Big rockfall has taken out most of the top half of the route along with the bolts. Not longer worth 2 stars!
