134m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A good climb, interesting and quite popular. Start at a scratched arrow up and right of the mine-workings.
1) 4+, 30m. Climb the slab and short steep groove then a series of short walls before traversing left to a good stance.
2) 5, 30m. Up the wall - tricky in places, with spaced bolts - to the groove passing the left end of the roofs. Up this to a stance.
3) 4, 20m. Trend left up slabs more easily then climb up into the base of a groove and up this to a small stance.
4) 4+, 30m. Continue up the groove then trend left and right up the wall to the big roof. Move left to a recess and climb the right wall to easy ground. © Rockfax

Lovely route and a proper adventure climb with the via ferrata/abseil descent. Last pitch has some interesting gear and a stiff finish. I think P4 was crux, other pitches mostly just moves off the belay.

a very nice route. We thought it better than the rockfax 'top 50 ' route derecha del espolon

I led pitches 2 and 4. A fantastic route, better than Derecha del Espolon. Spaced gear, especially pitch 2, and a steep sting in the tail at the top.
