Description 

This is the left end of the cliff from the small cave on the end through the section of steep wall that divides the two larger cave/depressions that are the centerpieces of the wall. Routes from 60 to 100 feet long on nice overhanging stone. East facing so afternoon shade, though the further left you get on the wall the earlier the shade comes. There are a bunch of routes on the wall so you may have to wait for the more popular lines but you don't need to wait generally if you are open to getting on any route at a certain grade.

Getting There 

Once you reach the wall you are looking at the first portion of the cave. The smaller cave is around the corner to the left or continue right to get to the cleaner wall separating the caves.

Comando Cono climbs a nice series of tufas.

Comando Cono 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  Europe : Spain : ... : Grand Boveda Left
Another great tufa line, that is quite sustained without any great rests. It climbs a lot longer than it looks, with a contrived "Slab" finish that detracts from the overall quality of the route. Begin up on a sloping, dirty shelf below an amazing array of tufa fins. Pinch your way up the steep swell to gain the wall. Trend up & right making a hard move off a slopey pocket, avoiding the big scoop out left. Continue shuffling right-wards from tufa to tufa until its possible to traverse back ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
