Talo Martín tells all: 'This magical route is in La Pedriza, my home crag 5 minutes from my house half an hour north of Madrid in central Spain. And with more than 3000 routes and more than 2000 boulder problems La Pedriza is one of the premier climbing areas in Europe - making me very fortunate to live very close by!!!
As in a lot of granite slab climbing makes up about 60% of the climbing style and this is my speciality! However, often at Pedriza the north faces like this are full of crimps, but this particular one isn't and this line follows an unlogical line with compression mantles, 'rock hams' and slab moves.
I bolted and climbed this this route with my brother Palan in 2007. We went back recently and filmed it with Manu Prats...tx Manu!!'
