207m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A brilliant route which is one of the best in the area. The climbing is superb and independent, and the finish is breathtaking. It is fully equipped. Start as for Vía Valencianos.
1) -, 15m. Move up, then right along a ledge to belay below a slab.
2) 6b, 40m. Climb onto a slab and make some thin moves up leftwards. Easier climbing leads up and right to a belay.
3) 6b, 35m. Climb directly up the wall and grooves above.
4) 6a, 35m. Continue to a stance on the edge of the pinnacle.
5) 6b+, 32m. Step down and across the gully onto the wall behind. Surmount a small overhang and continue up the wall above with some sustained moves and long reaches.
6) 6b+, 20m. Straight up the wall to the large upper cave.
7) 6c+, 30m. Swing wildly out of the cave and grind to a halt at thin move. After a rest another hard move, involving a blind reach, gains easier ground and the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Total classic route, top pitch is great, though not too bad for 6c+ with just one bouldery crux to pull over the roof. The 6b+ below this is a one move wonder as well, though very pleasant. Top pitch is definately harder than the lower 6b+, which is only really difficult because of the bolt position on the crux. First pitch is fine, though a stiff warm up for most probably! Straight into 6b slab moves, which you can avoid on the left if you like. Go do it!

βeta: First class route, worthy of the 3 stars. For what its worth I thought the grades were -, 6b, 6b, 6a, 6b+, 6b, 6c+ We also did from the pinnacle to the cave in one pitch on a 50m rope (just)...a fantastic, absorbing, exposed pitch.

βeta: Fantastic. I thought the grades for the last 3 pitches should be 6c, 6b and 6c. Also the second belay is too high on the topo.

Tutu 31 Dec, 2018 AltLd O/S Scrambled up first 15m pitch, lead 2, 4, 6 climbing pitches. Great route, though a bit polished, esp. the 4th, 6b+ pitch, with quite a few holds greasy in the sun. Also a bit of rope drag because of the gully so had to skip bolts or unclip draws. The next 6b+ was easier and sharper. Final 6c+ is nice but not sure which was the hidden hold the rockfax guide is mentioning, the bit after the cave rest seemed easier than the polished overhanging start. The route is mainly in the sun from about 8:30-9am, not in the shade as we thought, so bringing some water is advisable. I carried a small trail running pack with approach shoes in it, which was fine for climbing. We used 10-14 draws on pitches. Took us close to 4hrs bottom to top. Descent is via the well-trodden hiking path. Better to rack up at the car park and leave your stuff in the car as you’d be descending that way.

Cyrees 21 Dec, 2018 AltLd dog Did pitches 1-6 clean and quickly alt-lead. Did the last pitch with one rest. Got the moves wrong looking for the 'hidden hold' - which was actually much further up the route! Wanted to be sure that we could get out, so ended up finishing the pitch and not repeating it to try and get it clean. Mega route. Will have to be back to fully put it to rest, but no problems there! Highlights definitely the corner crack, the pitch 5 sequence, and the view from the cave. Highly recommended - though a shame about the polish on some of the pitches.

Dave Douglas 7 Mar, 2017 AltLd O/S What a route. Some beta for those that want it. Scramble first pitch is loose so take a helmet. First 3 bolts of the first proper pitch is the hardest climbing on the route. 2nd pitch is long trad groove about right for the grade, but if pushing it you may want a few nuts for the start of the crack. 3rd pitch is fine. Nice ledge behind the pinnacle to belay on, but bolts are old! To belay from the new double bolt belay would give bad rope drag. 4th pitch is the crux. Polished and thin at the crux! Never 6b+, harder than top pitch. 5th pitch is never 6b+ either, 6a or 6a+ at most. Lovely exposure. Top pitch is easy for thugs. Just remember that half way up when you can't see any holds, reach left to a hidden jug. Four stars!

PeteH 16 Feb, 2012 AltLd O/S The only thing that would make this better would be if the pitch off the top of the pinnacle was another steep jugfest instead of having that delicate polished slopey section...

eddieclimb 2 Feb, 2011 AltLd O/S pt1,3,5 and 7 and the wife 2,4 and 6. This is the first big route I have done and what an amazing experience. If anyone is looking for a bit of exposure of a sporting nature then look no further, a little over 5 hours for the ascent. Pt5 more like 6c but the rest felt about right!

Jake Shaw 7 Feb, 2009 - Good route. Pretty friendly at the grade. Thought the crux move was on the supposed 6b+ pitch after the pinnacle/gully, which is more like 6c. Top pitch more like 6b+/6c
