Las Ventanas from across the canyon.

Description 

This area "the windows" sits up on the west side of the canyon and faces east, though there is a south and north facing aspect to the actual windows themselves.

The wall is divided into 2 parts. One is left of the windows and is a steep overhanging wall that is about 80 feet high, though it is so steep that some of the routes are quite a bit longer, like 120-150 feet long.

The right hand part is the actual windows and the cave to the right of them which faces north.


Getting There 

Hike down into the canyon. Then head north or up canyon, you will have to cross the river on stones a few times depending on where you drop into the canyon. walk until you are below the arches and you will have seen an obvious brown trail cutting up and left across the slope below. Aim for this trail and follow it up to the arches. The approach takes about 30 minutes from the car.

Amble up the big tuffas without too much difficulty to a good rest, then attack the small roof to a rest above. Next head up on some pinches until you have to move to the left side of the blunt prow. Smaller blocky holds take you up the final portion of the route. The holds turn slopy over the liop making it difficult to find a spot to clip the anchors unless you have a lot left in the tank or you get fully up onto the slab.A nice pumpy route with a bouldery crux low but you could fall anywhere ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
