Rockfax Description
35m. Yet another masterpiece with the difficulties confined to the lower two thirds of the pitch. Photo on page 130. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start 5m left of where the base of the crag starts dropping down. Awkward climbing to an optional stance, then the long wall above.

Ticklists: El Chorro dreams - 6a to 6c+.

Jinked out left to a slanting crack around 5th or 6th bolt (or 7th). Going direct would have been about 7a+/7b.

Unbeleivably sustained, blind climbing on holds that are mostly much worse than they look just before you get them. Properly technical - took me more than twenty minutes! A vary hard pitch. The most involving 6c I have experienced. Felt more exhausted afterwards than if I had done a normal thirty metre 7a. El Polvorin is hard!
