Excellent route, especially pitch 2. Set off to lead it all in one with a 70m rope. Ran out of quickdraws half way up pitch 2 so lowered back to the belay. We then both led pitch 2 - excitingv up the exposed wall, with a couple of tasty overhangs to finish. Pitch 1 is about 30m, pitch 2 slightly less. One of the best routes of the week.

The first pitch was an easy 5, but the second pitch felt like a stiff 5+ over the bulge, and some of the moves require confidence to lead clean. Amazing views from the top though and definitely worth seeking this route out. A 70m rope was just about long enough to abseil to the first belay point.

Done in one pitch with 70m rope. Same problem as below, didn't manage to lower off to the first belay so my belayer climbed up the first pitch. Fantastic exposure (for a sport route), breathtaking finish, easily a three star route. Best route of it's grade in Mussara. Take care with route reading near the top.

Superb fun with great vista on the second pitch (its the reason you come to Spain!)
