El Toro (The Bull) aka Front Side Rock Climbing

This massive wall/mountain which faces town and camp is home to the famous testpiece El Sendero Luminoso
. The 12th edition of Magic Ed's guide lists only a handful of routes, so there is likely great new route potential. The wall has a lot of aspects but generally faces N or NE and is a shady place.
Decent trails lead from the vicinity of Tami's to the crags. Allow at least half an hour for the approach. For more details, see guidebook.

Approach for Land of the Free/El Sendero Luminoso:
From a large pull-out on the road head down into the riverbed and locate miners road on the other side (as of 12/2014 it had a sign and a gate). Follow the road for 500 steps and take a trail uphill. After 150 steps it splits. Right - to Plutonia caves, left - to LotF/ESL through some loose scree to slabs below a mine.
