Restricted Access

The area is a nature reserve and access to the crags on Frontales and Escalera Arabe is sensitive. You may see people driving up the track from the water tank, but it is not allowed and you could well be fined. It only adds around 15 minutes to the walk in. The whole El Navegador sector remains banned to climbing due to rare flora with the exception of the lefthand-most route. There are 2 signposts in front of the cliff and a wire fence to mark the restricted area but these have been pulled down by climbers. 

38m, 2 pitches.

βeta: A few of the bolts are a bit tired on this one, or overdrilled, and the belay is past its best. Would benefit from a full rebolt, remove the half height belay, and regrade as a single pitch.
