Unbelievable climbing in the middle pitches, couldn't get the grin off my face. Fell off the crux pitch a couple of times.

The final pitch is hard after all the previous pitches. Another scorching route with great positions.

Did L1-3 on Saturday but retreated - massive queues, holdups and then waiting to see what the weather did during the thunderstorm. Approached the headwall via Moskitos on Sunday as lower slabs still looked a bit damp. 2 rest points seconding the top pitch. Mega steep, mega exposed, mega fun.

So cool! Started up Mosquitos to the big ledge skipping the first 2 6a+ pitches. Ran 5 and 6 together. Frigged top pitch.

What an amazing route. In short, the best of the three we climbed on La Visera. Sustained 6b/6b+ climbing until the final pitch, with an 'epic' 45m pitch to get to this point. All of the pitches are fantastic, with the overhang coming off the ground on P1 setting the tone for some steep climbing, all the way to the final meters where the crux of the route is to be found. P2 is excellent, being a series of the famous 'panzas', P3 gains the headwall via some pleasant and not too steep climbing (6b) before a U-shaped traverse L then R (6b+) unlocks the 'epic' overhanging stamina pitch of 45m to a suspended belay some 40m below the top of the wall. From this point, we opted to climb the short '6b' pitch and the crux pitch together. Another option would be to split them. From this point of view we are ok with a 7b onsight rating. The short 6b is actually very hard, harder than some pitches on Fiesta which generously get 6c in my opinion. The final pitch is reputed for its boulder crux in the final couple of meters, however, it has a pretty hard crux just coming off the belay ledge and then a series of hard moves before you break into the grey summital rock. I'm happy with 7b but not too bothered if the consensus is 7a+. By this point you're pumped out of your mind, so it doesn't really matter. Just a word on our style prompted by what we saw going on around us. It was a Sunday, and unlike on previous days and routes, there were some other parties on the Direct to the L who then cut in above us to 'aid' the last pitch of Zulu. Generally all the local climbers' seconds (and sometimes leaders) seemed content to aid climb any hard sections - it's very much the Sunday style at Riglos. That's fine, but I am happy we free climbed all our routes and particularly this one, though it was out of keeping with the overall form this day on the wall. We also honed our big wall skills by hauling a pack on our tag line, and managing this and double ropes through 5 hanging belays (and one ledge belay) in the breeze. Quite amazing how far out the tag line goes, as the leader moves up the implausible, overhanging wall! A top, top route. Definitely demente!

Awesome! Hard to really get across how good it is. Sit down rests on overhanging rock. Lead P1, P3&4 (ran together) and P7. Running pitches together makes it flow nicely. Great top pitch though was overtaken by the pump with the rucksack on.
