Description [Suggest Change]

The route begin on Plataforma de las Flores, a ledge on the base of the Torreon. You can get the ledge hiking the gully between the Tonino Re and The Torreon.
Pitch 1. Climb the beautiful crack (5.10) on the right facing dihedral. A bit of all: the route starts at the chimney, then layback, and wide to thin hands. The anchor has two bolts.
Pitch 2. The crux (5.11c) is a short wall protected with old pitons, although you can add TCU. 5.11 fingers. You can link the two pitches with a 60 m rope.
Descent: rappelling the route.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rack with extra sets of cams to #3 Camalot. 1 #4 Camalot.
