<< None < None | El Diedro > Espero Manolo Jaen >>
A worthwhile climb with some interesting positions. Fixed gear is adequate but rather spaced and a light rack is a good idea so the climb can be enjoyed to the full. From the col behind the tower scramble down and across ledges to the start.
1) 5, 40m. Climb grooves left of the arete until forced onto the edge. Pull over the small roof then traverse out right above the big one (exposed) and climb up to a stance with bolt belays.
2) 4, 14m. Step left and climb the short blocky arete to easy ground and a bolt belay under the final wall.
3) 5, 30m. Follow the flake crack to its end (no fixed gear) then move left to threads. Trend right across the face to a cave (threads) then step left and climb rugged cracks to the top.
DESCENT - Abseil from the final belay (30m) then follow the ledges out into the gully and scramble round to the start.
