Beta for the route, not too accurate though...

Description 

P1) Climb up the boulder and traverse left for a good 8m above the steep wall. Then go up a slabby face to a bolted anchor (5.7, 40m).

P2) From the anchor, climb the obvious crack (crux) on the right side of the anchor passing a pin. Then go up in the chimney to a huge ledge. Climb a second crack to a bolted anchor (5.10c, 30m).

P3) Climb straight up on easy terrain, trending left to another bolted anchor near the end of the pitch (5.7, 50m).

P4) Climb up the obvious crack to the top (5.9, 30m).

Rappel with two ropes or walk down the gully on the Southeast face.

Location 

The route starts at the foot of Chorro de la Vieja. Finding the start is a bit tricky. Refer to the picture. There is supposed to be a bolted (mixed) route on the left side of this route but we never found it.

Protection 

A standard rack of Camalots (#.3 - #3) and nuts. Extra 60m rope if you plan to rappel the route.
