Fell off right at the top from poor route reading, frustrated! Felt so bomber on it didn't feel like a failure. So many other routes to do in Chorro didn't bother with RP that day, due to nature of fall but was going to wander back day later to RP after a bit of regret, but rain put a stop to that! :-(

Alterative finish completely up the left arÍte, missing the last bolt ( which is on the roof/arÍte to the right). Easier than moving back accross the face to clip, and a straighter more natural line. Lovely technical moves. A worthwhile variation, and still completely safe despite the longer runout.

So close again...fell 2 moves from the ledge before the chains. Endurance is coming

Slipped on the second move, landed back on the ground, got back on it straight away - as close to an onsight as it gets. But one must be honest. Beautiful climbing. I thought the crux was toward the top, the bottom moves felt fine.
