Just to the right of Sector La Directa is a wonderful grey angled slab with a plaque on its lower left base. The lower slab provides some excellent moderate lines, either giving quality routes to the midway stances, or to provide access to the upper wall. The upper part of the wall above the slab rears up and provides a number of superb leaning wall and groove lines. Many of these routes are 30m long if the intermediate stances/lower-offs are not used so go carefully when descending/lowering off. Guidebook page 148.
