The route is a long, gently overhanging technical wall climb on the left of the stunning sweep of limestone that is Oliana. Mac described the route as "a boulder problem start to a ledge rest, then four technical crimpy sections with marginal shake-outs". This is Mac's preferred style of climbing.
Lancashire lad Mac now splits his time between Chamonix and Spain and is usually accompanied by his very large dog Uuka.
Well done Mac!
