BETA PHOTO: Overview of Gran Boveda.


Large east facing wall. 3 main cave features. The one on the far left is small but has very difficult routes. The next one hosts mostly 5.12 and 5.13- routes that are about 60-90 feet long. Then there is a section of wall without a cave that has some nice long routes from 5.12c through 5.13. Next up is the main cave feature with routes from 5.13a through 5.14 and up to 140 feet long, yes you need an 80m rope to lower if you clip the chains.

Getting There 

Head directly down into the canyon and up to the wall when you are below the left hand end. Approach time is about 20 minutes.

Coliseum is the central line of the Gran Boveda, splitting the massive cave with 40 meters of relentless jugs & tufas. The line is consistently steep, but a cornucopia of great holds provides passage at a (relatively) modest grade. The line follows a vague overhanging dihedral, & an intermittent finger crack in the back provides a few key holds, though most of the climbing is on good pockets & fins. There isn't really a distinct crux, though there is a long dash between rests at around 2/3's ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
