1) 4+, 22m. Devious but excellent. Start by the old green name and make a long traverse left above the overhangs to the second bolt-line. A direct start is a lot harder (6a) and a bit unbalanced. Climb the face, steep and tricky to start, then step right to a belay on the edge of the cave. Twin bolts hidden in the shadows.
2) 3+, 18m. Climb the red groove then step out left - exposed - and finish up the slab above the chimney of Petreles.

Pitch 1 is superbly steep and exposed. Pitch 2 more like 3+ and a bit of an anticlimax but still well worth doing.

Best route at the grade I have done! There are some moves on the first pitch where a slip would be serious, as the bolts are placed in a weird way.
The second pitch is easy, but nice.

Superb! 1st pitch technical and steep, 2nd pitch fantastic position for the grade.

I thought pitch 1 was pleasant enough but fairly bland, though the route really came to life with the exposed moves out onto the rib on pitch 2. Easy, but what a position!

Excellent route, the belay at the top is two bolts and no chain, probably best to walk down the gully, as shown in the guide.

Enjoyable route, first pitch more technical and fingery, especially the traverse! One good bolt in the shadows of the cave, take large wires to back-up. Second pitch easier but superbly exposed. Now with chain belay. Some loose and rusty bolts enroute, but overall well protected and no cause for concern.

Enjoyed this more than Jhonny. First pitch provides some great climbing, while the second pitch puts you in a great position.

bit of a scary start when traversing but very nice climbing!
