The spectacular grey sheet of rock high on the left above the lower gorge offers some fine face routes in an impressive setting. Some of the climbs could do with being rebolted. From the parking place follow the track under the bridge, cross the dry river bed and scramble up to the rim of the water conduit. Follow this left-wards, crossing it at the first opportunity. Scramble straight up the bank passing to the left of the obvious pinnacle (the top of the CAGALLO DE GEGANT, see below) to the two prominent trees on the ridge. Behind and to the right of these a low rocky band is passed via an awkward 3m chimney to the second pylon on the ridge and just above this a ramp leads back down to the left to the foot of the face, a steep ten minutes from the car.
