The route Espolón Central avoids much of the steep lower section of the pillar. This is tackled by a number of significantly harder routes that take intricate lines up it, mostly arriving at the top of pitch 8 on Espolón Central. These routes are all worthwhile and have straightforward abseil descents. Guidebook page 207.
