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. May 3, 2016
