La bella** 7b
['La Bella', Pena Roja, 4 kb]16m. The best route on the side wall. Reach the prominent large pocket and continue to the small overlap via the crux moves. Climb more easily rightwards to reach the lower off. Superb climbing but nearly impossible for the short. © ROCKFAX

Very nice route - underclingtastic, technical and rather thin - but didn't have the beans for the crux move. One for another day.

Up to clip 5 no problems then repeatedly shut down on crux move... need a fresh start at this one to stand any chance. Just hope ankle gets better after aggravating old injury.
