134m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A good climb, interesting and quite popular. Start at a scratched arrow up and right of the mine-workings.
1) 4+, 30m. Climb the slab and short steep groove then a series of short walls before traversing left to a good stance.
2) 5, 30m. Up the wall - tricky in places, with spaced bolts - to the groove passing the left end of the roofs. Up this to a stance.
3) 4, 20m. Trend left up slabs more easily then climb up into the base of a groove and up this to a small stance.
4) 4+, 30m. Continue up the groove then trend left and right up the wall to the big roof. Move left to a recess and climb the right wall to easy ground. © Rockfax

Well then. Didn’t spot the very hidden belay at the end of the first pitch. Kept going. Thought I could link the two “30 meter” pitches on my 70m rope. But this was impossible as both pitches were in fact more like 40m. Couldn’t even see the second anchor. Had to rappelle down on a bail maillon. Then found the first anchor. Too far to throw the rope to Ali. Retreated all the way. WOMP WOMP.

An excellent route, well worth the drive south for. Pitch lengths are: 40m / 40m / 30m / 40m and abseils are 25m & 30m Blog gives more detail:

Mountain route, metal work at top, follow to abseil rings past an exposed walkway

Lovely route and a proper adventure climb with the via ferrata/abseil descent. Last pitch has some interesting gear and a stiff finish. I think P4 was crux, other pitches mostly just moves off the belay.

a very nice route. We thought it better than the rockfax 'top 50 ' route derecha del espolon

I led pitches 2 and 4. A fantastic route, better than Derecha del Espolon. Spaced gear, especially pitch 2, and a steep sting in the tail at the top.
