210m, 8 pitches.

Rockfax Description
E1. A neat direct version of Valencianos with a great line. Escape onto Valencianos is an option at several points. Take a rack.
1) 3, 35m. Pitch 1 of Valencianos.
2) 6a+, 25m. The long slippery corner has the crux at the top.
3) 5+, 30m. Pitch 3 of Valencianos.
4) 4, 20m. Meander up easy ground to gain the right edge of the upper slab, beneath the steeper headwall. Belay in a recess.
5) 5, 30m. Follow the pleasant corner above to the main ridge.
6) 4, 20m. Climb a groove then move left to easy ground.
7) & 8) 50m. The last two pitches of Valencianos. © Rockfax

MP. Combined with Via Valencianos until the fun corner slab - missing out the 6a+ section. Good climbing up the corner slab for 2 pitches. 2 Students.

Did via P3 of Lopez de Sancho (6b) and P4 Los Miserables (6b). JJ's screwgate got stuck on P4 chains so had to abseil back down and cut the sling with a shoe lace. Good day out if not a little eventful.

Took a couple of falls on pitch 2, lowered out and finally got it. Felt sustained E1 5b for the last third, no harder than 6a+ though. Fifth pitch is a stunner, simple at f5 but pretty sustained but the holds keep coming. Leading a novice on Ex Spanrock.

I took pitch 2 (crux) and had a stupid foot slip on the glass like slab on the left.

Mint route. Maddie led the crux pitch with one fall, really good effort, I was huffing and puffing on second! Rest of the route was fairly straightforward though the 5+ slab/corner pitch was good fun. Mint views, especially from the last few pitches. Original plan was to do gomez cano but was beaten to it, plan B was UBSA but was beaten to that as well. To add to the excitement keen dan forgot to bring a rope so we ended up giving him one of our halves. Was pretty exciting doing a 300m route on a 50m half.

Awesome day out. Topping out the 5+ pitch to that amazing view is really good. Happy to lead the 6a+ pitch but shame about the fall. Thoroughly unconvinced by the E1 grade which is a shame as once I was up there couldn't really have wussed out.

2nd pitch has polished slab and sustained crack climbing, mistakenly carried on a 6b on 3rd pitch and abseiled back, 5th pitch has some delightful climbing , deserves 3*

Very slippery but great. L1 3º, L2 6b, L3 6a, L4 4º. Beware with loose rocks. I recomend taking the two worthwhile pitches of Virginia Diez to get the top.

second pitch is bolted but beware of the slippy footholds.

we continued up the face above the second pitch. 6a+ or 6b? Felt hard.

Missed out pitch 2, but the 5th pitch is stunning and would be worth 3 stars on its own. The lower 3 pitches are very prone to rock fall even from seagulls!
