The large needle directly adjacent to the refugio Emelio Frey. Home to routes of various difficulty, the short approach makes this needle more of a crag and crowds are frequent.
From the Refugio, walk out the door and look up.

This is a variation to the normal Los Museos/Lost Fingers route.This link-up may be done as one long pitch using a 70m rope. Start up Los Museos and head left up the steep, unprotectable slab to the overhanging crack of Abrojos e Centellas with 2-3 fixed pins. Ascend the pumpy crux bulge directly. Easier climbing leads to a belay in an alcove. Belay here or continue on through the final steep dihedral crack of Lost Fingers for a sensational mega-pitch. An ultra classic and stiff for the grade....[more] Browse More Classics in International

I wouldn't say the approach is exactly short... 3 hour hike in, last bit pretty steep. Just sayin.
However there ARE lines at the Aguja SOMETIMES (in 2 weeks there saw 2-3 parties that had to wait).
If it's busy, El Abuelo, M2 is FANTASTIC. This is a do not miss destination, especially if you don't have enough of a rack/experience for Cochamo.
IF YOU ARE TAKING PUBLIC BUSES:
Be warned. They close sometimes, and certain lines won't run on certain days and that is NOT NECESSARILY POSTED. ASK LOCALS before you step on a bus... it might not run the next day and only they know that kind of stuff.
But hey. Yolo.
