The juggy, slabby mid-section.

Description 

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.

Location 

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.

Protection 

~10 bolts to 2BA.

Don't be deterred by the bouldery start. Feels a bit height dependent but both this and the neighbor to the left are much better once the starts are surpassed. Worth pulling through the beginning should that be the case.
