An oddity up the hole; it eases as soon as you can get established in the tube. A couple of threads might be useful and a narrow side branch may be of interest.

A bit of a one move wonder. Hard to get off the ground, very easy after that.

First couple of moves are the hardest, novelty of climbing up a short tube well worth it though.

This gets 6a+ in the two local guides I have seen. Just becasue the hard moves are just off the floor doesn't mean they don't count.

F5 and 2 stars (for extended version). An experience rather than a climb, definitely one for the Brits. Tube is fun, then stick as low as possible for the best climbing on the traverse.

Great route - s Fiend says, more an experience. It has been debolted in the hole, but can be easily protected with a couple of slings.

Easy route for the grade but worth it for the tube - check out the second little cave off the tube whilst you're there.

Fun, but a direct finish seems more obvious.

Pequeño saltamontes es por la placa desplomada por fuera del tubo, un pequeño boulder que luego equipamos. Por tanto la dificultad es un buen 6b, quiza un 6c. I try translate it in my poor english: Peq. Salt. is out of the tube, an old boulder problem bolted after the first climb, a hard 6b, maybe 6c. The tube (into) is only another start for the other routes: Ferra, Coral, Patxi, Erupcion, ... Probably the first route in Gandia, 1970?

The same first bolt to two little and hard routes: Peq. Salt (left, 6b) and Monster of rock (rigth, 7a).

Do you kwon there is another narrow tube into the little cave going up to the big tube? It's like espeleo. A curious formation for very thin climbers and especially for children. Of course, without grade.
