[Jack Geldard climbing Mandragora at Siurana during the Climbweb.net meet in May 2009, 3 kb]35m. One of Siurana's classic routes which follows the fine orange streak. It is a little polished around the crux at 10m and is also a bit run-out at this point. There is a mid-height lower-off. © ROCKFAX
** NB. Despite this being 7b for years, the concensus is that in its current polished state this is now worth 7b+. It has gone in the new guide as such **

thebigfriendlymoose - Lead RP - 01/Feb/14 with Stephen

chuffed to flash, very pumped. if you climb in the peak you wont think its polished.
nathanlee - Lead β - 04/Jan/14 with Jack Lawledge, Anna Gilyeat, Oli Grounsell

Had 'last day of a three month trip' blues on this one and was worried I couldn't do it. Went smoothly on the RP though.
Rachel Slater - Lead RP - 11/Dec/13 with Meshi, Tom Livingstone

Tricky! Didn't seem very polished, certainly sustained though!

Bristoldave - Lead RP - 12/Apr/13 with Pete Polish

Luke Dawson - Lead O/S - 06/Apr/13

Disaster. Pumped and fucked by 1/4 in, lowered in shame blaming the dodgy rope.
GuyVG - Lead dnf - 29/Mar/13 with Ram, Coops and Calamity Oakes

great to be on endurance routes again. Read crux wrong at first and placed draws so lots of pump management necessary
Ram MkiV - Lead O/S - 28/Mar/13 with Lee Van Noaks

Awesome! Managed it first redpoint having failed to do the crux, coming down, dogging it to the top once. Went for a burn to see what the best link I could get was and ended up just about managing the pump to the top, well psyched! Hardest Redpoint to date. Defo soft for 7b+...
Duncan Campbell - UKC - Lead RP - 21/Feb/13 with Rob Greenwood

Superb enduro-fest.

Brilliant route!!!! one of the first lines i saw on arrival in siurana, bit of a crux then sustained easier (but a bit run out) to the top.

Late start climbing after a really wet morning. Worked the crux (between bolt 4 and 5) with Jo about 4 times. Rest of the route felt good albeit run out in places. First four bolts make great climbing.

Hidden - 2012

Bit soft for 7b+? Did 2nd go and apart from a short crux it really is just about keeping the pump under control. Very, very good though and Papagora looks almost better!

2nd go
markalmack - Lead RP - 30/Oct/11 with andy lole, Dave morse

billb - Lead - Sep/11 with Lee

Ground-up second go. Tried for the onsight but fell off after getting flash-pumped and muffing the crux. A fantastic route and nowhere near as polished as I thought it might be. Not sure about the grade but upgrading due to apparent polish seems strange as compared with somewhere like Stoney the rock felt almost untouched!

Messed up onsight, did next try few days later, after working out the crux.. was raining so the top was quite spicey!

3 dogged goes, in the perfect rain umbrella - only route dry all day. Decided too hard but definitely one for next trip. Awesome, beautiful route.
mattyork2 - Lead dog - 11/Apr/09 with James Gray

did crux on 3rd go but got into a mood with the bolting higher up and lowered off :(
ksjs - Lead dnf - 28/Feb/09 with alex

did crux 2nd go. think the wall got the better of me psychologically and i took 2 rests on way to 1st belay. took me 3 gos to do moves away from 1st belay then rested at each on bolt on way to 2nd belay - just a bit scared. took 5 gos to do final move. cool route and confident i could do next time.
