Opus Nigrum


Here’s a route that I long wanted to do in Pison, Los Mallos de Riglos, Aragon; Opus Nigrum 280 m 7b+. Although it has an expo reputation, it turned out to be a quiet one – with remarkable character (60 m rope lengths and average 10 bolts per pitch), very few chalk and solid conglomerate rock navigation.

Off-the-deck on pitch 3…
