Description

Classic route providing the easiest climb to the summit of La Visera. The first two pitches are enjoyable climbing in a left facing dihedral (5.10a/b), finishing with a traverse right. Another dihedral pitch leads to a large ledge that is followed to yet another fun left facing dihedral (5.10a). Continue up, then make a memorable, exposed traverse right to the giant limestone block known as "the throne."
From here the original route did a short rappel down and right, followed by another rightward traversing pitch. From here one can walk to the summit.
A more enjoyable finish has been added that follows big holds up and left from the throne, then pulls over two crux bulges. These felt stiff for the grade but there is a rest in between and can be aided if necessary. Next pitch goes out a 5.10a bulge that can be wet after a rain. Last pitch is over easy ground, followed by a short walk to the summit.

Location

Starts below the big, left facing dihedral at the left side of La Visera. Descent is by walking a well worn trail on the east shoulder of La Visera. This is followed north until it connects with the main loop trail (Camino del Cielo). Take the loop trail west, dropping down between El Pisón and Mallo Firé.
