One of the best 5.11s in Siurana, Mayling is an excellent outing, and makes a great warmup for those interested in the routes further left. The route climbs quite a bit longer than it looks, with not a bit of trivial movement, and great rock that is not sharp.
Begin a bit left of the bolt line, up a brown slab. Work back right at the first bolt, then follow juggy pockets up the orange wall to a diagonal flare. Hard moves head left from the flare to reach the horizontal break and a good rest. Make big moves over the bulge to a slabby finale to reach the hidden anchor.
At the right end of the L'Olla cliff is a tight collection of routes behind a wall of trees, located to the right of where the approach trail meets the cliff. Mayling is the 3rd route from the left of this group (note that the first two routes share the first bolt & anchor).
~5 Bolts to 2BA.
The first half of Mayling is mostly juggy & fun.
