Description 

Rosario Penon is a unique climbing area in Puerto Rico due to the Firulay wall which is continuously steep (about 35 to 40 degrees) although not very tall. There are about a dozen routes at this wall ranging from 5.9 to 5.12c and 25' to 50' long. We noticed a possible 5.13 while we were there and it will most likely be added very soon. The wall gets sun till early afternoon so cloudy days are best but Firulay stays relatively shady most of the day and can even be climbed when its raining!


Getting There 

From Hwy 2 near San German take exit (Salida) 168. Head north on 330 for about 3.8 miles and turn right on 348. Follow this for about 1.6 miles and turn right onto a dirt road just before a small bridge. Park anywhere in the large grassy clearing. Walk around some posts with a chain and continue following the dirt road to a clearing with a privy on the right. Walk straight through the clearing and you should pick up an obvious trail. After about 40m or 50m the trail will split, the left fork goes straight to Firulay (The Gym) and the right one goes to the Vertical Jamming wall. You can also walk between to the two walls once your at the base. Total approach time takes no more than 10 minutes.

This route is accessed by climbing Obstinada. Pitch one is probably 5.10b and traverses straight left from Obstinada's anchors and then climbs up an ever steepening face to nice belay ledge on the left.Pitch two is the money pitch with awesome exposure and great movement traversing up and right across tufas (5.10d). Either belay from the anchor and rap off or have your second lower you to one of the anchors near the top of Obstinada and belay from there. Note a FULL 70m rope is needed to rap ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
