I was a little disappointed by this via ferrata. Being a rock climber and mountaineer, I believe the best routes are those where the difficulty is similar all the way up. This route is relatively easy apart from the short section directly above the rope swing of extraplomix. A brief overhanging wall leads to a bottomless corner and an awkward move to get into it. I believe a short sling or resting hook is a good idea for this as a fall on modern ripping type lanyards could have serious consequences and mean the climber would be below the large overhang with no means of re-climbing back up. What needs mentioning is that the initial section finishes with either a left or right, go right to continue the route and left to look at the rope swing of extraplomix which was coiled up high when we did it. Finally, the very top section is flaky and a key staple has been pulled out. Also the step up to this has no cable. The constructors must be complemented on the development of this as a via ferrata crag. Thanks.
