DescriptionThis route offers fun technical face climbing that is sustained until you pull over the lip onto the upper slab on P2. Probably not quite a 3 star route, if it was sustained all the way to the top it would be, but certainly worth doing if you've exhausted other options close to the refugio.
P1: Start at the north end of the east face next to a drop off on the right at a bolt. Thin face moves bring you up and left. The route goes left of the bulge and is 6b, but you can do a variation through the bulge at 6b+ called "Que me aguante el prusik (FA Teo, retrobolted)" that is quite good. After this bulge there is a 2 bolt anchor.
P2: head up jugs past 3 bolts (5+ or 6a I think) to the slab and walk up to the top to a bolted anchor.
Double 60m ropes reached the ground fine, I imagine 2 raps with a 60 would not be a problem but I cannot say for sure.
