Deep in the gorge which cuts through the towering walls of the Mascarat, are a couple of compact walls with a few routes between them. The atmosphere is oppressive, but the best of the climbing (on the Hambre de Mujer wall) is good. A severe storm sometime around 2008 lowered the base of the wall by another four metres, a long stick-clip is needed to get started now. Some of the routes have been rebolted, check the state of the gear before committing.

El sherifico
A superb route swaggering up the left side of the face, with reachy moves low down and a sustained and pumpy finish.

A classic route following the snaking groove with well-spaced bolts. It doesn't really have a crux, but there aren't many easy...

A short route with a hard move past the pocket. Needs rebolting.

24m. Start up a slabby pillar and then swing around the corner where it starts to get steep. One more hard move leads to a rest...

The left-most route goes through a small hollow. From this (thread), exit right and climb the steep slab to the lower-off.

The wall between the holes goes two ways (both about the same grade) and a hard move off an undercut. The first bolt is high.

The wall right of the cave has lots of threads but needs a bit of gear as well. It improves with height. Abseil off or walk...

A poor line up the wall just right. Descend as for the last route.

Pulling through a bulge is the crux. Trend right to the lower-off.
