Ecce-Homo is a route located on a small secondary pillar, about 100m to the right of the Ostoicoechea Needle. A route that is becoming a classic due to its proximity to the cable car, and for having good traditional climbing pitches. It can be combined with any other climb in the Tajahierro Needles for a nice and enjoyable day of climbing. Highly recommended.
- The first pitch, a bit broken, climbs towards a long crack (next pitches). Set up belay station using 8 mm bolts that can to be reinforced with friends.
- The next pitch is a beautifully sustained dihedral-layback-crack. It's easy to protect using aliens and camalots up to n°1. The nuts fit perfectly. Belay station using two 8 mm bolts.
- The third pitch consists of an easier dihedral-crack but with difficult or technical moves. A real gem. It's easy to protect with large Camalots, it is advisable to repeat the red and the yellow, and take a 3.5 or 4. The difficulty drops down significantly in the second part of the pitch. Set up belay station using one piton that needs to be reinforced with nuts or friends. *If we climb the second and third pitches, there is only one spectacular pitch left, but it is only recommended if we do not need to place many protections to progress.
- The last pitch is a wide, vertical crack (actually a large hollow flake) that leads to an exposed spur of very good rock and well-protected by two bolts. Set up the belay station on the boulders you will abseil down from using some cordelettes.
