Santa Linya - Cova Gran

Some news and updates, kindly sent to us by Pol Ortiz.

a) At the left-hand side of the cave, routes between Tio Calambres and Airline L1 are currently not possible to climb due to a fenced off structure protecting the archaeological dig. Although there is doorway access to the area, a signpost clearly states that climbing is not allowed. Local climbers are trying to make sure that no one abuses this arrangement, which would only lead to further prohibitions. Therefore DO NOT ENTER THE FENCED OFF AREA UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

b) A variation of the project Fin de La Tregua has been climbed. The original route went up and left to join Rollito Sharma, but the new, more logical line goes rightwards to join La Fabelita, finishing at the R2 belay of La Fabela. Done this way, the route is named Climbinpeace and is 8c+. The original Fin de La Tregua project still remains unclimbed.

c) The project Joedan has now been climbed at 9a.

d) Open your Mind L1 is now considered solid 8c+ rather than 8c/+.

e) El Koala L1 + L2 is now considered to be 8b/+ instead of 8b+.

f) La Mare del Tano is now considered to be 8b rather than 8a+.
