The impressive ridge of rock which overlooks Calp has a few routes dotted around although the best are centred on an impressive arete and the walls on either side of it. The rock is excellent and the views over Calp are stunning with the Peñón making a great backdrop for photographs of the superb arête of Tai Chi. The other major classic is the Super Tufa Groove which is one of the best 6b+ routes in the area. The rock is quite sharp and a day here tends to take its toll on your finger tips. Some of the harder routes have improved or fully-created holds which spoil the experience a bit, but mostly the moves and climbing are excellent. Hopefully one day more routes will be climbed up on this ridge since the potential of the much larger right-hand end hasn't been touched yet, though the fact that it is in the shade most of the day is probably the main reason.
