180m, 5 pitches. An all time classic route on a beautifully cobblestoned wall.
The route is the original path up the largest of the Gorros peaks and therefore meanders around finding the easiest line of ascent, often crossing over newer, more direct lines.
It starts below and to the left of a large metal cross and traverses left to a good belay. The crux pitch is a bulge on the third pitch which is well protected. The rest of the route is somewhat run-out and has some old bolts. A couple of mid-size cams and slings are useful. Belay off the metal cross at the summit. Good route finding skills are necessary and can prove to be the real crux.
Descent is by a 30m abseil and via ferrata (although there is via ferrata from the top also).

Via ferrata chain removed Feb 2014. Now 3 abseils or down climb.
