    The water of the Plima is directed through a tunnel under the wall. If the amount of water rises above the maximum flow rate, the water in front of the wall begins to accumulate, which is more like a retention basin. But at the time of building certainly a masterpiece in this stale region.
    P.S. The wall is also great for bouldering!
