Description

The best line at Can Torxa and one of the best 7a's at Margalef. This orange, leaning wall is also one of the steepest 5.11's around, overhanging a good 15 feet. Fortunately the size of the holds is proportional, making this juggy line fun & popular. Don't expect a cruise though; this route is pumpy, with a bouldery crux just below the anchor.

To start, grab the hanging shelf, huck your feet up & campus up the big smooth jugs until its possible to mantle up. Killer pockets head up & left to an undercling flake. Work up sinker pockets left of the black tufa streak to a good rest at a hole. Clear the orange bulge to reach a horizontal break and a good shake below the crux. Exit the intimidating roof to the left on small but positive pockets.

Location

At the center of Can Torxa is a large dihedral with an orange, overhanging left face. The line of bolts heading up the orange face is "Chachi qui Chapi".

Protection

~8 bolts to 2BA. Stick clip recommended.

A classic! Not to be missed. An amazing line of pocket that don't hurt (like so many pockets do here). A pumpy little masterpiece! Mar 13, 2015
