Sheltered

This magnificent cave has some excellent steep routes on some great featured rock. Polifemo is the popular hard route although Alfredo Alfredo will rival it when re-bolted. The sun arrives here in mid afternoon and the cave is sheltered from the wind. The upper sections will get wet if it rains. Guidebook page 17.

Short but sweet, with some good climbing up the short tufa system and flake above. Start to the left of the first bolt.

A wall climb with some fingery and technical moves but don't believe the 7b+ written on the rock. It gets a bit close to Imias...

An easy and wandering start leads to some fingery wall climbing on small positive holds. Pigs-tail lower-off.
