Description 

Absolutely fantastic.

Start up the biggest, proudest tufa at La Selva. It is obvious. Two lines to the right of the cave and one route right of Mogli. The bottom was labelled in 2016.

Ride the tufa for four bolts of dreamy side pulling and then launch up big moves and big holds on the gently overhanging face. Cop a rest in the middle and keep grinning through more underclings and juggy flakes.

Play it cool cause it ain't over. The angle kicks back and you'll need to bring the ruckus.

This route alone might be worth the trip to Spain.

Location 

Park at the last parking area and walk past all the not-so-inspiring crags of Camarasa till you reach the vertical orange rock of Sector Fashion. Maybe 20 minutes to here. Then continue on another five or ten minutes across some ledges and rungs to reach the goods at La Selva. Tufas and overhanging pockets. You'll know it.

Shere Khan is just right of Mogli, which is just right of the cave. It starts up the biggest, proudest tufa and finishes out the biggest, proudest overhang.

Protection 

18ish quickdraws and a 70m rope. Put a knot in the end.
