Vía Missing Link*** 6b+
[Lead climber reached the arete belay after a long and tricky traverse., 2 kb]130m, 2 pitches. A magnificent route up the arete which needs a full rack of gear. 1) 6a+, 35m. From the sloping ledge move right then carefully down-climb, to gain a low traverse line. Follow this awkwardly, staying just above the water (difficult to protect) until it is possible to climb diagonally upwards (don't climb up too soon) to a scoop which leads to the hanging stance on the arete. 2) 6b+, 45m. Power up the arete above, first on the left, then on the right. From the diagonal break, either traverse left to gain the grassy ramp, or climb up the rib above to the top (50m, 5). Variation - Luces Nocturnas, 6b 2a) 6b, 25m. Just after the route swings around the arete, traverse right to a cave to belay. 3a) 6a+, 25m. Pull up above the cave and climb back to the arete above. Only a bit easier than the original and less good. © ROCKFAX

Too many bolts on the second pitch to be E3 but the first pitch was serious enough, brilliant route though.

Climbed as a 3 on twin icelines. Pitch 1 and 3 onsight. Clipped into several bolts to rest on Pitch 2.

Shallow water solo of pitch 1. Continued to belay for pitch 2 and jumped off. Class, but not safe at the start.
