'Eclipse' — Paret de l'Os

The line shown in Lleida Climbs (second edition) for the route 'Eclipse' (page 97) is actually a direct variation known as "Variant Boira". This is considerably harder than Eclipse 'original' (7a if done completely free) but is fully equipped with parabolts and rappel stations and is possible to ascend at V+ if a number of bolts are used for direct aid. Consult the topo below with pitch grades for the "Variant Boira".
