Description 

Las Manos del Dia is a fantastic line on Trinidad Central, that begs comparison to the Rostrum, and Astroman. Of the 12 pitches, 8 are 5.11, including two pitches of 5.11+. The climbing is incredibly varied, including slab, stemming, bouldery cruxes, splitter cracks, OW, power layback, and technical dihedral trickery. This route is not to be missed on your Cochamo trip. It features some of the finest climbing in the area, and the amazing cave/diving board ledge at the top of the tenth pitch is out of this world!
For detailed pitch description and topos, check in the refugio.

Location 

Las Manos is on the south-west corner of Trinidad Central. The climb begins at the top of the 2nd scree gully, as you hike from the bivy boulder. You rap the route.

Protection 

These sections are always kind of funny... I'll just write the rack I used. Rack of nuts. TCUs, doubles up to .75, three #1, two #2, one #3, two #4, one #5 (new 5). I used everything I brought, and was glad I had it. The 4s and 5 are for the 11th pitch, so you can't ditch them. You need two ropes for the rappels. Bolted anchors.
