Access to the place
Hiking to the start 20'
From the parking lot, descend to the Rio Vero and cross the small bridge. Take the path that climbs to the left and, a little further up, forks to the right for the Basender. Climb up until you reach a flat section that runs along the top of the canyon. Follow this path as it descends a little, eventually reaching the head of the barranco. Turn sharply left to start the descent along a path which becomes steeper and leads, after a small step, to a small room where you'll find the 1st abseil.
Course 1h à 1h30
The canyon is fairly easy, with a small gradient and good equipment. The only problem is the crowds!
A 1st abseil of 10m without difficulty, then a path that turns slightly to the right to find a 2d abseil of 4m, followed by a small canyon full of vegetation to cross.
2 options here: either link up 2 inclined abseils of 10m each to reach the main hall, or follow a ledge equipped with a lifeline on the right flank for around 50m to do a 20m spider-wire abseil at the foot of the same main hall.
The next part of the climb is in a very steep part of the barranco. Further on, an attractive 10m abseil is followed by a step to be de-scaled. You're now almost under the rock. Continue on to find a small 3m abseil and then the final 14m abseil, which lands us in another large room overlooking the Rio Vero.
Climb up the Vero, crossing the rio a few times. Further on, at the level of a small, impassable dam, a path twists up the left-hand slope and you reach a fork to the Basender. To return, descend to the Vero and cross over a bridge to the other side. From here, you don't need to climb back up to the starting parking lot.
