'The Law of Desire' follows the right-hand side of the main ridge at a very amenable grade. It is fully bolted and very popular. The main drawback is people descending down it while you are on your way up. For this reason, a helmet is advised.
1) 5c, 20m. Take the left-hand line of bolts, just right of a corner.
2) 5c, 20m.. Continue in roughly the same line. This pitch can be combined with pitch one.
3) 4c, 25m. Continue up the line marked by silver dots, to a belay at the top of an open rib.
4) 5a, 35m. Continue to a well-positioned stance on a cleaned ledge. There is another belay 5m higher.
5) 4c, 40m. Move right and follow closely-spaced bolts up a wall on great holds. Pass the first tree stance and climb up another 15m to the next with twin bolts.
6) 6a, 40m. Make a hard start away from corner. There is a 2-bolt hanging stance at 30m or continue (40m) to the stance at the start of pitch 7 on Albahida.
Descent - Finish up the last easy pitch of Albahida and walk down - see page 129. Alternatively, abseil off taking care to avoid parties climbing up below you. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
The rockfax guide book is not explicit enough. . You do need to factor in time to do the last pitch of Albahida where trad gear is advisable (which could turn into another two pitches as there are two more belay points) and then factor in a long scramble to the summit AND then an hour walk off. All in all probably better to allow three hours from top of pitch 6....
