The fine right-hand wall is steep and has plenty of superb long sustained technical pitches starting at 6b and heading upwards.

Problem zquierda
The line on the far left starting up a shrubby ramp is pretty poor.

The centre of the slab via a vague flake and maybe a quick dyno. After half-height trend right up easier ground. Polished.

The right-hand line climbs the face left of a left-facing flake, and is quite hard if you do it all direct. Tricky first clip.

Agárrate como puedas
A direct start through the bulges usually via a dyno. It can be done statically, but not by many.

El pasa de la dende
The thuggy crack and butch roof (tricky clip on the lip) lead to scrappier climbing above. Manages to feel like a HVS 5b.

Through the Magic Door
The wall right of the corner leads to a roof and a nice finish up the grey slab. Popular, despite the loose patch.

Soca una igualita
Climb the fingery grey wall, then, when the angle eases, trend left to finish at the same lower-off as Through the Magic Door.

Le Baton
A hard move at half-height, either dyno for a blob or climb to the left of it. The second option is easier but less satisfying.
