This is the original route on this buttress, predating the others by years. The first ascent team described it as one of their best new routes, and they have done a few. Previously we located it on the wrong buttress which led to some confusion. The original description: "The line continues on the right side of the buttress following a beautiful right-facing corner up to a crack that goes diagonally up left to another right-facing corner and then up to a big grass ledge". We believe the line to be accurate. The aid was used on pitch 7 to get out left past the roof.<br/>Descent - Scramble a couple of hundred metres up to the ridge - loose and exposed - then descend down to the left. Or possibly abseil to the top of Asturias Route and descend this.

The lines drawn for this route on the pictures on page 190 and 191 in the guidebook are drawn on the wrong buttress. The correct buttress is the one with the caption "one of the better-looking unclimbed buttresses along the coast"... But that's how it goes when memories fades...:-)
