Derecha del Espolón*** 5a
[Climbing in baking heat with a Euro-House soundtrack., 2 kb]242m, 4 pitches. reason. Start just right of the fall-line from the groove on the right-hand side of the pillar at a well-trodden area. 1) 4+, 60m. Wander up easy slabs to the 1st bolt then climb the groove via the odd tricky move past one stance to another on the tip of the tower - 10 bolts. 2) 5, 38m. Climb the face trending slightly leftwards until a short tricky wall (the crux - avoidable further left) leads to a groove. Up this to a good stance out on the left. 3) 4, 32m. Trend right up the wall by good sustained climbing then move up and left to a small exposed stance. 4) 4+, 28m. Up the face until a couple of tricky moves lead to easier ground. Up the gully to a stance. The abseil descent is 30m left, just beyond a bush. © ROCKFAX
