This is the section of cliff to the NW from the downclimb. There are roughly 25 excellent, though short routes. This is the most convenient crag at Cochiti, where it is easy to setup TRs on many routes, there is a nice 'scene' at the cliff base, shade trees, and a good diversity of grades is available.
From the downclimb, head NW.

La Espina climbs a rounded arete and face just to the left of Cochiti Classic. Very fun and sustained from the moment you step off the deck to the time you clip the anchors.
