The best moderate at Espadelles, beginning with a stout boulder problem and finishing with pumpy climbing up the ultra-featured gray face. The moderate center offers easy climbing on big jugs on tan rock.
Begin in a cirque of five routes. Use the cheater tower to reach a sinker pocket 4" below the first bolt. Hike your feet up, hit the vertical slot & mantle into the sloping bowl. Easy terrain leads up & right to the corner. Continue up & right to the gray panel, where juggy flakes & pockets lead up to the anchor.
Walk to the far right end of the Espadelles cliffline. Just after passing 4-5 routes of steep tufa lines you will reach a shallow cirque with ~5 routes. This is the right-most line in this cirque. This is about 50 yds left of where the cliffline makes a big turn to the left.
~10 bolts to 2BA.
The juggy, slabby mid-section.
The steep, juggy finish.
