Placa gris*** 5c
[La Placa Gris, Second Pitch, Marin, 2 kb]48m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A disjointed line but with some great climbing.
1) 5, 22m. An excellent route. Start at a triangular hole and climb up steeply then follow the slab, keeping left of the brown streak, to a stance in the left-hand edge of the cave.
2) 5+, 20m. Climb the steep rib, then make an unlikely traverse right to enter the slanting groove above the cave. Finish up this - exposed and atmospheric. © ROCKFAX
