A brilliant climb on magnificent rock. Intimidating, but not that hard, most of the gear is fixed although some might find a small rack welcome.
1) 3, 15m. Make an easy rising traverse onto a sloping ledge.
2) 6a+, 35m. From the ledge, move out right until you are below a wide crack. Sprint up this to a hanging stance above.
3) 6a+, 30m. Climb steeply leftwards, then finish up the slab above, past a few bits of fixed gear, to the diagonal grassy break. Belay a long way up left along the sloping ledge. © Rockfax

Mega the route of the trip for me ,not hard but atmospheric Worth flying to costa blanca just to climb here
Led P1+3. Awesome. Steep 2nd pitch. Don't be tempted to belay in the small recess. More technical third pitch. Dunked ropes in the sea when pulling down ab; oops.

Amazing route super intimidating but not that hard. It would however be difficult to retreat...
ross did the traverse pitch to get to the start of the route.i led both of the hard pitches and ross and charlie followed.it was very greasy in the 1st half of p1 but was still an amazing route!LOVED IT!
ross garfoot, Charles French
Bolts leave much to be desired; bring a medium sized trad rack
Lead first pitch.
