Very popular during the 80s, as an "initiation" crag. If you wanted to be a climber, you had to climb the classic route "Espolón". Nowadays, it is still a great route to get practice with multi-pitch climbing. Nevertheless, the rest of the routes on the south face are not for beginners.
After the bridge in Canto Cochino parking lot, take the path on your right, cross the meadow and cross a second bridge, then go left. Keep on walking leaving the river on your left until you get to the meadow of the Cerdito ("Little pig"), with a big boulder in the middle, resembling a little pig. You can see Peña Sirio from there, so just head out following the cairns.

Pitches IV-, V, IV, IV+, V-. The first pitch has one chopped bolt but can be protected with trad gear. The second pitch (the crux) has no bolts, and the only opportunity for gear is after all the hard climbing! There's a bolt ladder to the right at 6c which is possibly aidable. The next two pitches, the easiest, are (bizarrely) well bolted. The last pitch (up chiselled holds) has a single very old bolt - there's a well bolted line just to the right at 6a(+)....[more] Browse More Classics in International
