Ortigas has more than 12 high quality sport routes from 5.10a to 5.12c, most being 5.10+-5.11-. This wall is south facing, so there is shade all day. The routes are full 30m, so be careful when lowering.

At least a few routes have more difficult extensions - 70m ropes might work, or maybe you have to lower down/rappel to mid-way and rappel again to the ground.

Getting There 

When hiking into Buitrera Canyon, at the first large bend to the right (east), go across the stream and you are at the big shaded cliff - Ortigas. El Circo is across the canyon.
