Amazing tuffa climbing to great face climbing. One of the best routes that we did in Spain.

Continuous climbing through the steep stuff on tuffas to a good rest in a hole. Then pull the final bulge to the gray face. Start out on a hardish move off of a two finger pocket on the face. Then head up on sidepulls to a final tenuous move to the finishing jug.


At the far right end of the Gran Boveda. This is the 4th route from the end of the cliff. Start by climbing up onto a raised shelf about 10 feet up, then up the tuffas above.


13 bolts to a bolted anchor.

Totally agree with Lee, this was one of the best routes I did in Spain. The tufa action on this is amazing. This is also one of the few tufa routes at Rodellar that stays (mostly) dry in the rain. I really wanted to do Gracias Fina (immediately left of this) after doing this, since this was so good, but it was quite wet.

This felt hard for the grade to me, but some of the holds were wet & my hands were numb, so who knows. Dec 11, 2009

Hey Mono,

Gracias Fina is in the Pince Sans Rire cave not at Grand Boveda, though the route to the left of this also looks quite good. Dec 13, 2009

You're right, my bad. I meant "Les Vielles Glories", which is the best 13a at Rodellar according to 8a.nu's "Top 100" list. Dec 14, 2009

The best 7c I did at Rodellar and probably the best I've ever done, on par with Laurent at the Sikati Cave in Kalymnos. Aug 13, 2018
