Rockfax Description
E1. An excellent combination is the lower section of Aurora, the middle bit of Botella/Montesinos, a short section of G.E.D.E. and the final grooves of Boulder Terminar. This provides a nine pitch outing at a sustained 5+/6a which spirals up the buttress from the depths of the gorge to the ridge crest high above. © Rockfax

I led pitch 2,4 and last pitch. The first two pitches were fully bolted, 3rd not so much, 4th was bolted, and then the rest was pretty much trad. Really good rest day outing. Only downside was the cold and shade on the boulder terminal pitch (which was awesome though).

A great route linking lots of good climbing. 9 pitches; 6a,5+,6a,5+,4,2,5+,6a,4+ I led p1/3/5/6/7/8. Pitches 1,2 and 4 are fully equipped, bring a set of wires and cams for the other (partially equipped) pitches. Rockfax description is wrong for the upper pitches. Pitch 5 traverses left (leaving Botella stance) under the overlap and crosses the corner to a double bolt belay another 4m on. From here a short grade 2 pitch traverses up and left to belay below the big orange Boulder Terminar corner. The next pitch climbs as for BT, up the corner and left across the slab. The pitch after that takes the continuation all the way to the roof before traversing right to the end of the overhang, to a belay on the arête. The Spanish topo suggests this might be 6b, with an optional traverse right halfway up this pitch at 6a. Finally, A short corner leads to the ridge. Dropped Rachel at the start, parked at the top and used a micro scooter to get down the hill. Pretty awesome route, the big corners were in the shade though and it was chilly.

Went off route around pitch 4. Not sure why,or where we should have gone. Pitch 1+2 well bolted. Pitch 3 E1 5b, but OK trad gear. Pitch 4 spaced crap bolts and v. Little trad found. Forced to traverse left VS 4c ish. Easy 5+ well bolted pitch 5 and v.tough 6a+ pitch 6, then easy scramble to top. Should have walked down towards toix,but abbed off and struggled to find bolts/ gear for lower abseils. Not really worth the hassle of doing this route and still not sure where the route should gave gone.
