Pitches IV-, V, IV, IV+, V-. The first pitch has one chopped bolt but can be protected with trad gear. The second pitch (the crux) has no bolts, and the only opportunity for gear is after all the hard climbing! There's a bolt ladder to the right at 6c which is possibly aidable. The next two pitches, the easiest, are (bizarrely) well bolted. The last pitch (up chiselled holds) has a single very old bolt - there's a well bolted line just to the right at 6a(+).


See picture; espolón is number 1, and Maldita Vecindad #2.
