Rockfax Description
Very good climbing direct up a steep tufa to reach the Los primos cave. The difficulties lie in reaching the good pockets in the steep bulge, after which the climbing eases. Beware of bees. © Rockfax

Martin McKenna - UKC 4 Mar Lead β Quality line. Outrageous steepness for the grade. Good holds with a bit of a sequence midway up the route.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 4 Mar Lead β Theo gave me some primo duff beta, which was essentially a 101 in how not to do the crux. As such I'm claiming a 'better than onsight' ascent, whereby I had to actively fight against bad info, which is a whole lot more challenging than no info!!

bobstones 17 Dec, 2018 TR dnf I knew it was a very long shot but thought I’d give it a go anyway. Shut down by the third clip and just no way of making progress with my weak fingers. Desperately need to make progress with them but difficult to do on the road.

Emilysaladfingers 17 Nov, 2017 Lead RP Brilliant line! Worked out the beta yesterday but was too tired to latch the last move on the crux, got it done today! The top section (and the 7a to the left of this) was incredibly greasy, so even though the top is just hero jugs it added some excitement!

Mat Welsh 16 Nov, 2017 Lead β Steady Flash due to Em's work on the beta ! Quality line with a techy crux section low down on tufa, pockets & crimps onto a steeper wall on good holds. Viva L'Ocaive !
