|28m. A spectacular line; enormous, committing and with the crux at the top. Climb the prominent independent prow 2 caves further round from tarantino cave (walking away from the rest of Cala Barques) Ascend the right hand side of the prow on tuffas and stalactites to obtain a semi-rest in a shallow cave at about half height. Above this, move diagonally up and right to finish with a long move past an orange streak at the top of the wall. |
Topping out at roughly 28m (vertical height) and with only about 4 m of water this is a very serious route and a fall from the top would be very ill advised (although it has been taken by both Jacob Cook and Ian Cooper and they were both unharmed) (S3)
A preplaced exit rope was used for the First accent although it was done without on the same day by Ian Cooper.
