Description

This is one of the best routes in the El Chorro area, and should be done by anyone climbing at the grade. It is a crack climb, but like limestone routes, you'll be using face holds as well. The crack can be wide, flaring and dirty in spots.

It is definitely a trad route with a few old bolts along the way. It is also known to be a bit of a sandbag (or the shitty Rockfax guide is just wrong), and is said to go at about 5.11. P2 and P4 are given the grade of 6b+ while P1 gets 6a+ and P3 gets a V.

The topo in the Rockfax is also misleading, so maybe try and take a look at the local guide if you need more information.

Location

Left side of Africa Wall. Once you've rapped down to the ledge, traverse climber's left to a belay w/ some old pins. There is an optional 5+ first pitch that you will reach before you get to the original start.

Protection

Single set of cams to wide hands and set of wires.
