Description Suggest change

This massive wall/mountain which faces town and camp is home to the famous testpiece El Sendero Luminoso. The 12th edition of Magic Ed's guide lists only a handful of routes, so there is likely great new route potential. The wall has a lot of aspects but generally faces N or NE and is a shady place.

Getting There Suggest change

Decent trails lead from the vicinity of Tami's to the crags. Allow at least half an hour for the approach. For more details, see guidebook.
