Magrana

Description 

This spectacular line of tufas & cobbles is, along with Rodellar's Roxy La Primera, one of the best 5.11a sport routes in Spain. The route follows a truly amazing curtain of mini-tufa drips, which has produced a menagerie of intriguing, excellent jugs.

Begin a bit left of the groove and climb the slippery slab to a good flake. Traverse right to the corner and across to the good stuff. Crusie up the orange slab on unbelievable flowstone to a good undercling rest. Big moves to cool knobs lead into the amazing groove. Around the sixth bolt, move left around the prow to milk the killer 2-finger tufa thread. Big moves lead back into the groove and a good rest at some tufas. A hard bit leads right, then up a slight bulge to the anchor.

Location 

The central section of Finestra features a 200-feet-wide, 80-feet-high, 45-degree-overhanging wall with many hard-looking routes. Magrana is the first route left of this overhang.

Protection 

~9 bolts to 2BA. Stick clip recommended.

Incredible line, and by far the easiest in the area. The start is kind of lame and beta-intensive, but once you move right into the groove it's a joy.
