Climbing banned in Spain

Due to the ongoing spread of Coronavirus, Spain has banned all climbing. Continuing to do so not only puts people at risk, but can also put more strain on emergency workers. Please do not climb here.

100m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb long route and the easiest way up the whole wall.
The first 3 pitches are well bolted but there is little fixed gear on the last pitch so take a small rack. The first pitch is 3 star and well worth doing even if you don't want to go any higher.
1) 6b+, 25m. 2) 5+, 30m. 3) 6a+, 20m. 4) 6a+, 20m. © Rockfax

βeta: Really nice long route, all pitches are fun, crux is low in the grade and well bolted, others have spaced bolts and though you will need some gear for top E1 crack, which has one bolt at the bottom. Two long abs to get down with double 60's
