Sheltered

A compact face of good rock, equipped with fat chain-link bolts and seconds from the car. The locals call the cliff Canyelles, though its usual name comes from the German climber who placed the bolts and named it after his dog. The cliff is basically a broad flat wall with a small subsidiary buttress to the left. We have use the old coloured names though much of the paint has faded. Guidebook page 272.

White Bolts
Another good one. Steep moves gain the slab then climb up to the final bulge which is taken at its left edge by a bolder move.

Disjointed. The right-hand line on the lower wall leads to a traverse right (stance) and a tough crack finish.
