Diedro de Naranja

E3. A fine sustained route up the big orange groove.
1) 6a+, 25m. Climb slabby rock, then the groove as it steepens. Follow the groove by climbing its left-hand side, and then direct (thread). Belay in a recess (thread).
2) 6b, 25m. Climb the orange slab on the right and follow the ramps rightwards to some threads. Move right again then up into a cave. Traverse right into the centre of the slab and follow this to the good ledge and belay. Abseil off.

first pitch is the hardest 6a+ i've ever done and second was scary and hard work!
(like most of the trad routes on costa blanca i've done - the grades are all over the place on this crag)
