The description is a bit vague and hard to follow. 1. Start behind the large tree 4m right of the start of Espolon de Finestrat (EdF) and climb a chimney/crach 3m up to a ledge. Traverse left past a bush to a clean face with cracks and pockets leading up and left. Follow these to easier ground below and overlap and move up left to the belay at the top of pitch 1 of EdF. Tricky protection. 25m 6a. 2. From here climbs the open grove above which contains some vegetation to a common stance on the shoulder with bolt and large thread. 20m, 5. 3. Move right 3m to a peg in a crack. Climb up and left past this up the wall past an in sit thread into a shallow scoop. Move left at the top and up again until it is possible to move right above a bulge and round the corner to the block filled chimney. Climb this to a ledge and block belay. 25m, 6a+. 4. Climb the wall above slightly left towards the arete until it is possible to traverse right under an overlap to a diagonal crack leading up right through overhangs. Break out left through the top overhang onto the slab above. Climb this leftwards to the crack in the headwall with a prominent thread. Up this then easy ground to the summit and common abseil point. 50m, 6a+. (The description is not clear and it may be that the route goes up the grove in the arete past an in sit thread to move right to the headwall crack. That would fit better with the description) Descent. 60 down to a pedestal on on EdF. 50m down to the stand on pitch 1 Diamante. 30m to the ground.
