A long pitch passing the lower-off of El vuelo de los peluos.


when i climbed it (April 2008), one bolt was missing right after the belay of "El vuelo de los peluos" when you climb to the right. That makes it very bad protected, i couldnt place any other protection there either. I made it, but it was scary... the fall would have be very long and sideways. you maybe hit a ledge. If the bolt is replaced it would be a very nice route.

I replaced this bolt in May after a friend fell at the clip with the rope in his hand.
A bit sloppy that that the latest guidebook still doesnt mention the missing bolt, particularly as it had been missing for many years.

To clarify above comment, the bolt IS now in place.

One of the best routes on the crag with fine varied climbing building to a testing finish. Thanks to Martin for replacing that bolt

Absolutely amazing climbing.keeps coming at ya.more like 6c.

Felt like a semi trad route though...The bottom section is fairly run out but more comfortably protectable with some good wires. Recommend to not add any extra bolts and put in a Trad symbol in the next guide. People who I spoke with had backed off from this brilliant climbing because of the space between the bolts.

And they were trad climbers!

Bit of a strange line. Protection fine. Good climbing but rather polished.

Awkward, not particularly well bolted and not much fun
