I believe we now own the speed record ascent of the Peña. Tomás MacDonald and Miguel Moore ascended the route, much of which was done simul-climbing, in exactly 1 hour and 30 minutes. Not bad for two guys aged 48 and 58! Someone needs to break this record and post here!
A great intro to multi-pitch. Gets hot in the afternoon even in January (bring lots of water). Safe and easy (On my first onsight I gave it a 5.9, but on the second go it is definitely a 5.8 as per the consensus here). Second assent: March 2, 2013 - so updated my info as to the correct info: (pitch # / grade / bolts / length in meters): 1 / 5.6 / 4 / 25m 2 / 5.7 / 6 / 30m 3 / 5.8 / 9 / 40m 4 / 5.8 / 10 / 50m 5 / 5.3 / 4 / 25m There's a short walk on a path to the next pitch. 6 / 5.8 / 10 / 50m 7 / 5.1 / 1 / 15m It is a bit run out in spots, but never in any places that a fall would be likely. Get down by hiking past the crosses, down toward the north a bit, and then down to the south-east. You'll find a rappel station near the top of the old via ferrata-like ladder rungs. You can do the rappel down with one rope to a second rap station 40 feet from the bottom or do it with two ropes (for me, not having to carry the extra rope up 7 pitches is work the double rappel).
