270m, 6 pitches. 8 Pitches: 6a+, 6a+, 6b, 6b, 6b, 6b, 6b, 7a+.
The hard final pitch can be aided (A1).
There is a new alternative finish immediately to the left, a bit easier but still quite wild! (7a)

chris m fisher 7 Oct, 2019 AltLd O/S Just awesome. To me this felt more 'out there' than Fiesta... the final headwall with 250m of air beneath your feet is quite something!

Dr Toph 14 Mar, 2019 AltLd Whilst Ive climbed many longer routes, Ive never felt as 'out there' as on the latter pitches of this. Ridiculous exposure and steepness right up to the very last moves. Felt like quite the punter. Aided the final crux pitch, without shame, to achieve a drama-free ascent. Will crushed it on second.

slowmotion 2 Nov, 2018 AltLd Lead P2,4 and 6. A lot of fun on a bonkers route. Some fyooge holds and big angles. Took a fun lead fall from the last ledge on pitch 6. An appropriate amount of panic and swearing occured. I blame the dusty vulture poo. Dogged the pants out of the last pitch.

Finlandia 12 Sep, 2017 Lead Wow! A huge thanks to the equipers and all the people who climbed this before me and pulled off the loose bits!! Despite how it looks, this felt solid, safe, outrageously steep, I couldn't stop grinning! Consistent difficulty with just a few of harder moves: about 3 bolts in to the never-ending pitch 5, end of short pitch 7 and of course the start and finish of pitch 8. I blame a litle fall on the huge unseen vulture taking off 1m away! Final pitch is not A1 in that you must climb between but if you've got to here, you will get to the top, I'd say 6b and A0. In September a cloudy day seems best to avoid baking. Watch out for the whipping winds. To get your bearings, the start has 2 bolts about 50cm above one another at the bulge straight off the ground, start directly below Supercrack but climb diagonally right. Leading blocks works well for this steepness.. Mallos very quiet, only a handful of climbers. Ace simple camping at Armalygal-view & river swimming.

AJM 13 Apr, 2014 AltLd Did L1-3 on Saturday but retreated - massive queues, holdups and then waiting to see what the weather did during the thunderstorm. Approached the headwall via Moskitos on Sunday as lower slabs still looked a bit damp. 2 rest points seconding the top pitch. Mega steep, mega exposed, mega fun.

John Carney 2 Feb, 2014 AltLd What an amazing route. In short, the best of the three we climbed on La Visera. Sustained 6b/6b+ climbing until the final pitch, with an 'epic' 45m pitch to get to this point. All of the pitches are fantastic, with the overhang coming off the ground on P1 setting the tone for some steep climbing, all the way to the final meters where the crux of the route is to be found. P2 is excellent, being a series of the famous 'panzas', P3 gains the headwall via some pleasant and not too steep climbing (6b) before a U-shaped traverse L then R (6b+) unlocks the 'epic' overhanging stamina pitch of 45m to a suspended belay some 40m below the top of the wall. From this point, we opted to climb the short '6b' pitch and the crux pitch together. Another option would be to split them. From this point of view we are ok with a 7b onsight rating. The short 6b is actually very hard, harder than some pitches on Fiesta which generously get 6c in my opinion. The final pitch is reputed for its boulder crux in the final couple of meters, however, it has a pretty hard crux just coming off the belay ledge and then a series of hard moves before you break into the grey summital rock. I'm happy with 7b but not too bothered if the consensus is 7a+. By this point you're pumped out of your mind, so it doesn't really matter. Just a word on our style prompted by what we saw going on around us. It was a Sunday, and unlike on previous days and routes, there were some other parties on the Direct to the L who then cut in above us to 'aid' the last pitch of Zulu. Generally all the local climbers' seconds (and sometimes leaders) seemed content to aid climb any hard sections - it's very much the Sunday style at Riglos. That's fine, but I am happy we free climbed all our routes and particularly this one, though it was out of keeping with the overall form this day on the wall. We also honed our big wall skills by hauling a pack on our tag line, and managing this and double ropes through 5 hanging belays (and one ledge belay) in the breeze. Quite amazing how far out the tag line goes, as the leader moves up the implausible, overhanging wall! A top, top route. Definitely demente!
