<< Vía Diagonal < Design and Form | Vía Esther > Joaquin >>
VS. A wandering route with some interesting positions. Start below a groove to the left of the arete of the cliff.
1) 4, 30m. Climb the groove then a steep wall to a gully. Belay here or cross over left to reach the belay ledge of Deception.
2) 4, 35m. Climb the slab behind the belay and then the left arete. Traverse down and left to reach a good ledge.
3) 4+, 25m. Climb the groove to a large recess.
4) 4+, 28m. Finish as for Diamond Solitaire.
An excellent route - pitch one deserves 4+. Overall the route is equivalent to VS I'd say and the climbing is more interesting than on Via Esther
