The best 1st route and probably the nicest of the easier routes on the crag.

Nice climbing but very polished at the bottom
Andy Birtwistle - 09/Feb/09

Polished at start, improves with height
Ian - 19/Apr/09

Polished at the beginning and with a large 'G' chipped at the start, hence the confusion! This is NOT the start of Geisha.

New 6a to the right (German name painted on the rock) is good but poorly bolted.
Brian Wilkinson - 26/Oct/10

Another new route to the right of the new 6a mentioned above. Mostly pleasant 5+ climbing but with a real sting in the impending tail which has got to be worth 6a+ or even 6b.

a fine liitle route

I can confirm the comments on the two new routes right of "the rib". In the first route the bolts are spaced significantly further appart than typical in El Chorro. There are lots of crags, maybe additional pro can be placed, I did not try though. The second route may be the one mentioned in an comment on "Geisha" also ("La de Seba"). Both new routes are longer than the rib, maybe about 25m.
