Such an enjoyable route with some tricky beta! Ignore complaints about the wet undercling; it adds character! Definitely worthy of 3 stars!

This route would get 3 stars anywhere in spain (I'm spanish). Soft for the grade, but we found it quite greasy and wet and it felt 7b+, but if you do it after it had some sun on it, defo feel easier
