The highly featured rock on p1.

Description 

Pitch 1 (5.6): The first pitch is the middle one of the 3 routes on the Covallonga sector, and goes straight up to a ledge in between two trees and continues past that ledge (the anchors on that ledge are for the two other routes). The belay is located at the base of the steeper section of the spire, under and slighty right of a roof which looks like it has been carved into the rock. Very enjoyable climbing on strangely featured rock, even though most of the pitch is only about 5.4. 90 feet.

Pitch 2 (5.9): The angle steepens to the vertical, and offers great moves with an incredible exposure for a 2 pitch climb. The finish past a couple of ledges will lead you to the top of the spire. Standing there with unobstructed views of the seacoast and the Mediterranean 3000 feet below is quite a memorable experience. 80 feet.

Location 

Right in the middle of Covallonga.
