Description 

Madroņo is the first route you'll encounter from the approach to Les Bruixes. Rated 6b+, it's the first of five "shorty" routes that are likely overlooked and not even considered the warm-ups for the wall. Nonetheless, it's an entertaining route offering a decent pump, at least for this mediocre American climber.

Start up the gigantic flake, under-clinging your way up to the first bolt. Move left to a faint pillar and a reachy second clip. A sequential move into the featured holds below the third bolt gets you into the route's crux, a crimpy set of moves past the third bolt to a sinker hand-sized pocket.

Enjoy bigger moves between big holds past two more bolts and over a final small roof to the anchors.


Location 

Madroņo is the left-most route on the wall. It's just past the obvious toilet on the right of the trail where extremely inconsiderate climbers leave their shit and used toilet paper.


Protection 

5 bolts to clip anchor.
