Alan James on La gimnasta (6c+). This is one of a group of four harder pitches on the fine upper section of Serena © Mark Glaister
An excellent elongated buttress perched at the top end of the Frontales ridge. It has three developed sectors with a good spread of grades, though nothing very hard. The easier pitches on the Medio and Bajas sectors make it a good alternative to sector Suiza on Escalera Arabe for those seeking routes in the lower grades. The elevation and open aspect give fantastic views and a cool breeze in hotter weather. It is usually quieter than elsewhere.
High, breezy and sunny. There is no chance of climbing in the rain, although the rock dries rapidly and there is little seepage. It catches the sun for most of the day.
Follow the road through the village, past the station and up the hill towards Valle de Abdalajis. At 3km from the station bar, take a steep track on the left (the junction where the track is on the left has a very large stone with a letterbox in it). Follow the track for 1.7km (passing the Rocabella crag parking) and turn left to gain a parking area and noticeboard.
Continue on foot along the track for 250m and turn left. After a further 100m, turn right and then in 150m a path on the left leads quickly to the base of the crag.
