A fun easy route that goes left at P6 of Brambillandia. Crux moves of 5.7 are located near the top. Originally the route was led with a few cams, nuts, pitons and bolts but it wasn't very safe. The first attempt followed various cracks that looked good from afar but were not so in reality. Later more bolts were added and the dangerous loose sections of climbing were re-routed to safer terrain.
From the Ventana Sur sport sector hike up the arroyo. You'll be able to see the wall of Gal Mebulbal/Brambilandia while hiking up, aim towards it. Between Spirito dei Montani and Sirtaki there is a climbers trail that takes you up and right towards the climb. It enters another arroyo and then goes up more. When it seems like you've reached the slabs look for a ledge taking you left then it switches back up right towards the climb using a fixed rope in one spot. Eventually you'll come to a slab with one bolt, there is a small cave nearby. This is the beginning of the route. After one pitch there is an easy walk scramble upwards and right towards the wall where the real climbing begins. Roughly 45 minutes uphill approach.
Starts at P6 of Brambillandia. Look for the little sign at the belay station which indicates the start of Gal Mebulbal.
