[El Dorado E2, Toix Sea Cliff, Costa Blanca, 3 kb]65m, 2 pitches. A brilliant climb on magnificent rock, best enjoyed on New Year's Eve for the full effect. 1) 6a+, 35m. From the sloping ledge make a diagonal traverse out right until you are below a wide crack. Swarm up this to a hanging stance above. 2) 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
