The prominent crack splitting the left side of the most continuous section of the wall. Take plenty of quickdraws.
1) 6a+, 40m. Trend left into the groove and climb it with occasional moves on either wall to a small stance.
2) 6b, 38m. Climb steeply up the wall into the continuation of the groove and follow this with sustained interest to a stance.
3) 6a, 45m. Continue up the endless crack (possible small stance at 25m) to a final short struggle up the final wide section.

Excellent line. Some loose blocks on pitch one and snakes on pitch three! £3 star experience but rather lacking in quality.

"3 star experience but rather lacking in quality"?! What on earth does that mean?

Last pitch is 6a+ and 1st pitch is 6a.Great route in the most beautiful area area covered by Costa Blanca guide.

Great last two pitches. Main pitch looks scary and 6b+, but is not so bad if tackled direct. Last long pitch is a pleasure. Worth three stars but Historia Interminable is much better and harder

The grade on the metal plaque at the foot of the route is 6a+. I don't know where the 6b+ grade comes from. First pitch has one awkward move, 6a. Second pitch is steep for a bit but on jugs, 6a+, third pitch is long -- but not 54m, this must be a misprint as it is 45m, 6a. The abseils on the descent are not 45m but 35m, you could make the third and final one a bit longer if you want to land right on your sacks.

Nice but maybe the routes on the right are better?
Anyway the line is beautiful.
