Set further up the hillside from the Penya Roja, and not visible from the car park, Xina keeps its delights well hidden. The best climbing at Xina is in the 7s but there are enough 6s to make the approach worthwhile. Some routes have the odd well-chipped hold but generally these do not spoil the overall experience. It catches any breeze which can make it cooler than elsewhere; ideal for winter mornings in the sun or summer afternoons in the shade. Guidebook page 152.

The wall to the right of the arete gives some very thin climbing. A good rest half way up prepares you for the stretchy crux...
