[Spanish roadside cragging at Alcalali., 3 kb]28m. Start at the (huge!) name and climb rightwards to the pocket line. From the top of this, climb the crux wall to good ledges then step left and head up the final wall which is awkward to start. A climb worth calling in for! © ROCKFAX

Genuinely stunning climbing. At different times bouldery, sustained, balancey, powerful. An awesome route.

Founds this tougher than the grade suggests, but likely because of there being too many holds. Didn't actually enjoy it that much tbh!

Quality moves. wrong handed twice so mearly missed the onsite! Hard to exit hole at crux.

Reachy, exciting and quite strenuous lower crux moving up and left from the top of vertical holey crack. Jug-fest up final steep section. Superb.
