HVS. The left arete of the wall has little fixed gear.
1) 4, 24m. Take the easiest line up the left-hand arete of the bay.
2) 5, 24m. Follow the steep wall (run-out) to a belay. It is possible to abseil off from here in one (44m).
3) 4, 20m. Follow the left-hand rib to another stance. There is a harder direct variation on this pitch that goes at 5.
4) -, 30m. Follow easy ground up the ridge.
Descent - Traverse east along the ridge to the first notch and scramble down to a tree. From here, abseil down Lofi (Toix Placa page 119 ) on the south side of the ridge. A single 60m rope will require four short abseils, or two long ones with double ropes.

The walking descent is long and involves an exposed crest. Just mentioning it, because it's described as a walking descent in a Spanish guide book.
