This is a large north facing drainage forming an anphitheatre with tall steep walls on all sides. There is a lot of rock up there. North means South down here so generally the climbing is nice and sunny. A new trail has been recently cut thus making this another major destination in the valley to hit, taking about 2 to 3 hours to the climber camp. It is a beautiful area and a bit more wild feeling. The upside of the hike up there is that the rock is naturally pretty clean and solid.
This hanging valley is located a ways off the main valley floor. You can see it on the hike in way up on your right, across from Arco Iris. To get there, hike from the Refugio following the signed trail "Trinidad" and "Anfiteatro". The trail splits off the Trinidad trail 10 min. in. Fork right and is easy to follow initally to the waterfall area then gets steep. The trail is well maked with orange tags and goes through gorgeous alerce forest.

The Doppler Effect climbs the beautiful Northwest Arete of Pared del Tiempo in the Anfiteatro. The bottom two pitches are 5.6R dirty bush pulling, and not very good. But the fantastic third pitch dihedral will instantly make you forget the two approach pitches. After that, the route sticks mostly to the true knife edge arete, following 13 more pitches and tagging two mini-summits on the way to the beautiful summit of Cerro Laguna. The stellar 12b tips crack can easily be aided, or avoided al...[more] Browse More Classics in International
