E1. An excellent combination is the lower section of Aurora, the middle bit of Botella/Montesinos, a short section of G.E.D.E. and the final grooves of Boulder Terminar. This provides a nine pitch outing at a sustained 5+/6a which spirals up the buttress from the depths of the gorge to the ridge crest high above.


Superb, very enjoyable route, starting from the bottom of the gorge and ending with a spectacular view from the top of the Inferior. The first couple of pitches are well protected but from then on the in-situ protection gets quite spread out, definitely bring all your trad gear. The belay points are all there, and pretty solid.

I don't agree with the upper comment: First pitch isn't well protected at all, and even you may have problems to place your own gear. third pitch is fully bolted, somehow a bit spread, but not dangerous. Last pitches are clean but with good possibilties to use your trad protection
