The main wall is in a lovely sunny situation looking out over the orange and almond groves that surround Castalla. The rock is generally just less than vertical; the routes tend to be fingery and sustained.

Follow small sharp holds and then easier jug-pulling as things steepen to a lower-off at the change in angle.

Start left of the tree and climb steepening rock into a scoop. The leftward exit from this proves to be the crux.
