DescriptionThis sector is famous for the long and beautiful classic - Zeppelin. There are also some old sport routes in the cave on the right and several easier ways to ascend the wall.
Getting ThereWalk down to the green bridge like you are approaching the Camino, but instead of heading down the hill to get on the walkway, get right on the train tracks and walk into the tunnel. There is enough room to stay safe in a train comes through (three times per day) but it is technically illegal to walk in the tunnels. I've never heard of anyone getting stopped, but it could happen. For comparison sake, it's also illegal to walk on the Camino, but there is a guide service that takes people every day.
Once on the tracks, walk a few hundred meters until you get to a large opening with a big drop on your left. Go onto the loop path on your right and look for a scramble down the gully and under the bridge. Once under the bridge, go to the left side and look for a fixed line or a place to rap from.
Alternatively you could rap from the bridge. Rap fro the RIVER side. A 60m will reach the ground in some spots but not all, and a 70m will reach in most (probably all). It's hard to judge from the bridge, so be careful.
