Very hard and pumpy, fell off first go after the crux when I got the sequence wrong after getting the gear in after the roof. Lowered off and had a go ground up.
Second go I got all the way to the very final move but couldn't commit. I then went for it and fell off with the gear way below my feet, falling about 8-10 metres. After this fall (and bleeding on one of the guys at the crag..) I decided just to do the final section after a long rest on the rope.
Ace route, solid e3

Definately dogged. Seems to be a pattern emerging, follow crack to roof, fall off a lot. Continue up stiff crack. Excellent protection and lots of stiff moves especially when you are boxed!
philhilo - Lead dog - 22/Jun/14 with Helen E
Fell off 3m from the top yesterday going for a chalked up sloper that proved totally useless! Re-assessed the sequence today and got it first go. Alleged crux through the overlap felt fine. Found the last 4m the most difficult.

much less sustained than I expected. A few semi rests in the lower crack, a good rest under the roof and surprisingly an ok rest halfway up the headwall crack, which was handy as I found the top just as hard as the overlap section, though I probably didn't get the best sequence. A brilliant E3

3 falls. one stupid one low down, but lowered to the ground and went at it again, got up to the roof but fell at this crux, then back to the rest did the crux but fell on the second cruxy bit moving over into the groove. Smeary laybacks aren't my preferred style but it was cool to get on and know that just because I lucked out and onsighted a 7a In El Chorro doesn't mean that E3 6a will necessarilly be easy, still you have to get on these things to get better at them. the very top is a bit of a sting in the tail btw...

Great route made even more atmospheric and lonely by being isolated from belayer by helicopter presence on roof pull. Went slightly wrong at the start by climbing into the groove parallel to the crack but got back on the route for the meat of it. Nice day - good times - thanks Hen

Scene of my biggest leader fall. Ended up cross handed in a squat position one move from the big holds after the pumpy headwall and too pumped to let go. Fell off and got quite a lot of wind noise. Held by Dave admirably and we both ended up eye-balling each other not far above the big spike with the sling. Never did go back to re-climb it.
