A. Muñoz, Cominio y R. Moleón 1970
Very interesting route that zigzags to avoid the upper roof and overhangs. Possibly it is the route on Veleta that is most repeated in summer. It has rock of very good quality and the route itself is of moderate difficulty. The beginning of the route is marked with a yellow arrow.
F. Olmedo y J. Guardia in July 1972
One of the most beautiful and repeated routes in this area. All stances are fully equipped except the R1 (optional pitch). The second half of the route has less interest so could be combined with the upper part of the Jota route, or of Silvia.
F. Olmedo, C. Vázquez, R. Pinilla, J. Ruiz, E. Ortiz, J. Baca y F. Perea in 1967
Long and beautiful route although along a somewhat convoluted path. The penultimate pitch, an aesthetic dihedral is amazing!
