BETA PHOTO: Overview of Gran Boveda.

Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

Comando Cono climbs a nice series of tufas.

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
