Grooves and cracks split by good stances offer a superb sustained way up the wall.
1) 6a+, 25m. The right-facing groove to a stance on the left.
2) 6b, 33m. Follow cracks up the wall then trend left to reach a stance on Eiger.
3) 6a+, 28m. Climb straight up the face into the base of the crack on the middle pitch of Eiger. Up this to a small stance.
4) 6b+, 40m. Follow the crack all the way to a small ledge.
5) 6a, 14m. Finish up the wall and crack above.


The grades in Chris Craggs' old guide are much more accurate! 6a+, 6b, 6a+, 6b+, 5
Anybody expecting 3 pitches of 6a is in for a shock! Not only that, the climbing is also rather awkward. Nice positions though!

We agreed with Al's comments. The first three pitchs are much harder. I checked with the local climbing club and they thought the grading 6b,6b,6a+, 6c,6a. We decided to finish via Eiger after pitch 3. not having enough energy left, for a sustained easy 6b pitch and hardish 6a pitch with an awkward 6a+ move at 6 feet. for 6 beautiful steep sustained pitchs.

Rockfax somewhat understates both the quality and difficulty of this route!!Nonsense to suggest that this is a series of variations on Eiger .Its THE line!Pitches 2 and 4 would be 3 star on their own anywhere with the other pitches not far behind in quality.

Compared to other routes in Costa Blanca this is a 3 star route, and indeed The Line! But we agree with other comments about the grades. The pitches are about: 6a, 6b, 6b, 6b+, 5+. The first bolt is high up! A friend is useful. Go for it!
