A magnificent wall laced with dramatic tufas. The severely undercut left-hand side prevents access to the upper sections by normal means however that hasn't prevented development. Further right the wall is very steep and streaked with long tufas and to the far right it gives way to a vertical wall of pockets and crimps. All of the routes here are steep and very strenuous.

Epoca Negra
At the far left of the crag close to the descent is the start of this deceptively hard pitch.

The full-length tufa pipe is a superb feature. The initial overhang is breached using some bolt-on holds.

An appealing leaning wall with little in the way of tufa but with a hard sequence midway.

A pleasant route which serves as a good warm up although it is not steep.

Big holds on massive tufas gain a position within spitting distance of the lower-off. A fine pitch.
