BETA PHOTO: Overview of Gran Boveda.
Large east facing wall. 3 main cave features. The one on the far left is small but has very difficult routes. The next one hosts mostly 5.12 and 5.13- routes that are about 60-90 feet long. Then there is a section of wall without a cave that has some nice long routes from 5.12c through 5.13. Next up is the main cave feature with routes from 5.13a through 5.14 and up to 140 feet long, yes you need an 80m rope to lower if you clip the chains.
Head directly down into the canyon and up to the wall when you are below the left hand end. Approach time is about 20 minutes.
