Great climb, hard to find this in good condition. Just have to accept a couple of damp holds.

What a brilliant route. Worth the journey just for this!

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

1st RP after putting the clips in. Amazing route!

took a while to work out good beta due to undercut being wet. Felt pretty brutal in the heat tbh

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

Pretty damp from 30 mph sea spray and drizzle. Surf looked good though....
