An easier route located at the right end of the cliff. Walk past El Divorcio, pass the group of 5 routes on the steep orange wall, and work around to a cluster of three routes at the end of the crag. There is a goat skull mounted on the rock at the end of the trail next to this route.

Climb up on the blockand if you're tall, clip the first bolt before starting the climbing. Climb into the short offwidth and onto the left face. Use crimps and edges to ascend the slab and mantle onto the right sloping ramp. Carefully clip the chains on the steep upper face.

This route is worth doing, but don't make it your introduction to Tenerife climbing (it's very unlike the character of the other climbs on the island.)
