This is the actual arches and the cave that is behind, to the north of them.

The rock here is more shattered and has very little as far as tuffas go. It may not be pretty but it is very steep. This is home to the iconic, as far as aperance goes, El Delfin. Also here are Los Borrachos de Mascun and Made in Mascun.

Getting There 

You are at the first window at the top of the approach. To get to the cave behind, it is best to stay to the south and head through the second, western arch, though it is possible to go through the eastern arch and along a narrow ledge into the cave.

Climbing Season

Climb holds that look like stacked cards. Nice sharp jugs that jut from the wall. There is a rest about 20 feet up but it really does not do much good. Make 2 moves on a short tuffa then head out the roof on mostly underclings. Eventually you will be able to lean back onto the base of the finishing corner which juts out behind you. Head up the corner to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
