The most striking of Sa Gubia's rock features is the dominant arete in the centre of the cliff - this is the line of the classic Albahida (Gubia Normal). The arete divides the massive faces of Cara Oeste and Sector Bomberos. Just to the left of the arete there has been some development of multi-pitch lines, both trad and sport. The lines on the topo should be used as a rough guide only as information on most of these lines is yet to be firmed up.
Approach - Walk under Sector Excaliber and keep heading straight on across the bay to below the arete.
