brilliant route but the 6b pitch is more like hard 6b+.

Climbed the first two pitches of Zulu at 6a+ to get past a slow party of three who'd just started. Didn't give a very good account of myself on the crux pitch, but loved the route, especially the 6a traverse pitch. A good intro to Riglos.

Atmospheric - the route that gets you into the positions of the big stuff with less of the difficulty. Bit sunblasted by the end today. Crux pitch has some pretty tough moves on it.
AJM - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/14 with Naomi Bessey, Ali Baylay

Blazing sunshine with an early start. Base jumpers. Loved the crack pitch & the traverse. Ran out of steam by the 6b pitch.

Another riglos adventure. The 6b pitch is very stiff. Led pitches 1,3,5,7,9.

Just arrived in Riglos and immediately headed up to try this classic route on La Visera around 2pm. Climbed with a single 80m rope alternating 'big' leads and managing rope drag especially on the linked dihedral pitches to the 'throne'. Final pitch proved a great introduction to the 'panzas' with two hard sections (especially as it was a cold, windy day and we felt rather cold by this point). A super intro to the Riglos style which warmed us up though for the Fiesta the following day!
John Carney - AltLd - 30/Jan/14 with Germain Mousset

Used a vague topo. Climbed too far up the corner, realised we were off route and abbed off.

6b pitch was quite tricky but nice rests on ledges
David Stevens - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/13 with Albert Palomer, Matt Craig

Last min decision, 3.15 start so had to get on with it, back at refuge for 7. Ace route 6b pitch felt quite hard for the grade.

Great way to get through some impressive ground. 1st route of the week and a great intro. 6a traverse was a highlight and the 6b felt stiff. Lead P1, P3, P5, P6...I think.

Just 2 pitches, something to do in the rain
mark20 - AltLd dnf - 03/Apr/10

An absolute must for any party visiting the area, massive exposure on relaively easy ground. Crux pitches high in air made for a phenomenal day out and definately one we won't forget in a hurry. Well bolted, well travelled, big holds, comfortable belays, big exposure and an easy descent give this route its well earned title of 'gran-classica'
AMarchant - AltLd dog - 16/Oct/09 with Anthony Eccles

highclimber - AltLd O/S - Sep/09 with Alex Marchant

Another fantastic outing! Done in rain/sleet/snow, but route dry due to crazy overhang at the top of la visera. Lead 6a crack, and 5c crack, both felt 6a to me, spaced bolts, lots of air beneath your feet, but good holds. Traverse at the end is the most exposed, wild, brilliant 15 or 20 metres of climbing ive ever done.
