The overhanging groove and juggy pockets with a tough sequence just below easy ground is superb.

The majestic diagonal pocket-line gives a superb pitch. Lots of hard moves broken up with reasonable rests.

Guerrero del antifaz
The continuously-leaning wall is mostly 7a apart from a fierce crux pulling through the roof. Hard to on-sight.
