At the rest before the crux upper section. April 2...
One of the longest routes at Futbolin, this fun route checks in at 7a+. Also, it's extremely well-protected. Two gigantic rests keep this route very moderate for the grade leaving only a single difficult boulder problem crux at the last bolt, just before the anchors.
Tricky, interesting climbing through the first five tightly-bolted bolts gets you to a big ledge; no need to loiter here very long...climb past two more bolts to a sit-down rest atop the small pillar with a fine view of the surrounding countryside. Pry yourself free from this fine perch and followed the enjoyable, positive flake up and left past two more bolts on ever-steepening terrain just below the crux. Crank from the generous hand-sized hole into a big pinch. Pinch for glory and work up through a couple of flat edges to a deep jug at the anchor.
This is the first route to the left of a large vertical cleft near the middle of the wall.
11 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with a single steel biner.
