The classic route of the wall follows a series of excellent grooves and cracks.
This is a fantastic adventure of a climb, but is much harder than the guidebook indicates. You will need a 60m rope to abseil to the ledge, do not try to stretch to 52m on a 50m rope it will not reach. The first two pitches are NOT well bolted, the bolts are widely spaced and very old. There are NO bolts on pitch 3 and 4 has one not very helpful bolt. Take a full rack, including medium and large cams. I have done easier 6c than the 6b+ of pitch 2 and the last pitch is even harder. If none of this has put you off it is a brilliant, fantastic route that you will enjoy recalling for years.
This is an intimidating wall. Started up Africa P1 which has just 3 rusty bolts. Later traversed across to do P2 of La Bella y la Bestia which is better equipped with rusty bolts. Finally traversed of wall to the R to a lower-off back to cave. Full rack, 60m ropes taken. Info in guidebook suspect.
Whoops I meant "traversed across to do P2 of La Dame del Viento 6c which is better quipped..."
We abbed in from the old belay point (didn't see the newer better anchor higher up) and had plenty of rope with a 100m rope doubled over, should be OK even from the higher anchor. Felt about HVS,E3,HVS,E2 if you don't trust the bolts. The belay bolts are solid though. Take 1-10 wires and med-large cams
