Pitch 1 on Via del Carles.

Description 

A popular and easy route. The most difficult part is at the last portion of the third pitch but it is well protected. Another iron cross is waiting for you at the summit.
Orientation is East
P1 ( 5.6 ) 115 f.
P2 (5.7) 100 f.
P3 (5.9) 65 f. (crux approaching the last third climbing a short vertical part)
P4 (5.7) 115 f.
P5 (easy 5.6 with a short section 5.8 in the middle) 115 f.

Location 

From the Monastary, take the Sant Joan funicular to the upper station and follow the St. Jerome’s cap. At the bottom of the Phrygian cap you will see an iron cross about ten meters from the walking path. Few meters left of the cross you can spot the first green bolt.

Protection 

10 quickdraws

Outstanding rock quality. Mostly easy climbing but a fun day out in a beautiful spot. See my note about the descent from this formation.
