[Puig Campana from the top of Marion, Sella, 2 kb]68m, 3 pitches. The prominent arete offers one of Sella's best known climbs. The grades suggested for the pitches seem to vary a lot, though they are all somewhere in 4+ and 5 zone. Photo page 155. 1) 5, 24m. Hard moves over a bulge then trend left to ledges.V2) 4+, 22m. Continue to another stance (50m to ground). 3) 5 (VS 4b) 22m. Follow a small groove to a tricky bulge (2 bolts). Pull over this then use the lower-off on the left or continue to the top on wires.VDESCENT - Make two abseils down the line. Alternatively, walk right along the ridge to reach the Ojo de Odra cave from behind. © ROCKFAX

The Ivanator - Lead O/S - 06/Jan/13 with Pete

Great climbing. Felt hard for a 5. Top pitch has 2 bolts, so could run it out to the anchor if you are feeling brave. Placed a nut because I wasn't. About VS 4b climbing for last pitch. Polished, but well worth doing for the view alone.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 09/Mar/12

Lead both pitches...didn't do third pitch as listed as Trad in the guidebook. Had a real struggle getting onto the block at the start of P1 and had a bit of an epic on P2 having gone right instead of left at one point then having to downclimb to clip whilst miles above the last clip. Felt hairy for a 4+ pitch so not surprised to see the voting generally lifts it a grade.

Lead the second pitch and the easy part to the top after the third pitch to abseil down the cave. Abseil down the cave hasn't got the best bits, one rusty old peg some threads and now a nut we left. Amazing views, worth doing it for that alone, climb is pretty nice too.
