This route is great, it follows a couple of really really big tufas for most of the route until they run out for the last 15 feet and you are left with some slopy balancy moves to gain the anchors. The route is 65 feet long to the obvious anchors, but there is an extension going to the top of the cliff that is currently a project. The crux is probably getting from the top of the tufas to the anchors, but it may have just felt that way since the climbing style changes so suddenly there. Overall, the route was fairly sustained and none of the moves felt much harder than any of the others. This route was probably my favorite of my entire trip to spain, so get on it, it's great!


This route is just to the left of the area that is fenced off for the pictographs. This is the left of the three routes that share the same start (Nunca Doy un Paso Atras, Happy Hour, and Humildes pa Casa), and is obvious because it is the only one that follows the huge parallel tufas.


Bolts (6 or 7) to chain anchors
