158 - Peña Sola NORMAL ***

      Interesting and commendable ascension. It offers a varied and safe climbing.
      The way begins on the left of the face looking at the village, just in a leaning where the insurances are seen (small perforation to reach the beginning). Arriving at the first insurance with a shoulders way if it is necessary, surpassing the vault and leaving through a short fissure to the comfortable meeting. Continuing through a red wall until reaching a cornice, which we will follow on our right for some meters until reaching the meeting just on the spire face looking at the village. Leaving for a fissure until you find a big tree. Reaching on your right another smaller shrub. Going directly through some lying walls until you reach a cave with a lot of rock bridges. Leaving on the right and climb for some plaques until reaching the hill.
      Descent: In rappel through the same way until the second meeting. From here to the floor.

      Equipment: 12 strips and a fissure.

159 - Espolón del viento **** (spur of the wind)

      The Peña Sola in its north face is marked with an outstanding spur, as it was a very big prow of a ship. The way begins with a toppled over fissure with a nail and then it gets to a meeting in an approachable cornice from the height. Leaving through an artificial fissure, then surpassing a paunch leaving on the right. Going ahead and then on your right until you reach the meeting on a cornice. Traversing the cornice on the left and ascend for a plaque until you arrive at some paunches and you will arrive at the meeting through a short wall. Then you must ascend on the left of the spur through a plaque until you get to an artificial paunch and then you get to the meeting on the spur left. From this point and right diagonal reach the meeting on a shelf. Getting from here to the hill is very easy. There is a way with few repeating.
