The description for this area is very vague. Firstly the crag is on a plateau called "Mesa de los Santos", it is several hours from San Gil. A great option if you are planning on climbing a few days(it certainly has enough for it), is to stay at the refuge of the rock, a rock climbing hostel located 100 feet from the crag.
If you are attempting to reach the area drive up the mesa and follow the main road past the cable car for the chicamocha park heading towards Los Santos (the town). Before you reach the town by a couple miles you will see on a hill directly off the road on the left, the sign for and the hostel itself (refugio de la roca). You can park here or just past the hostel at the stand on the left. This is where you can access the crag. At the hostel they have a guide book with pictures that they loan out.
If you are not staying at the hostel it is much faster to access the routes from piedecuesta or bucaramanga, as you can avoid the tedious drive through the canyon and the two tolls.
