Evasion is a classic 8a on the right hand side of La Surgencia. Start by climbing easy tufas for a couple of bolts to a kneebar. From here the climbing gets harder, culminating in a very cool cross through from a sidepull to a huge flake visible from the ground. Rest up as best you can and then fire some more long moves, chugging for the break. There's several good rests on the upper headwall (kneepads helpful) with a little sting in the tail below the anchors.


On the right hand side of La Surgencia. Look for a very white, bulging tufa on the upper headwall. This is Evasion.

This route seemed quite a bit harder than it's neighboring 8a, Corridor de Muerte. The rock quality also seemed better and it doesn't seep much compared to many of the Rodellar routes at this grade.
