Description [Suggest Change]
This is a great area to do some long and moderately sustained routes on those cold days when you wouldn't want to be shivering up on Torre Principal or the Camponile. Climbing here on a warm or hot day would mean lots of hours in the sun. From experience, you will get fried! The routes are of high quality compact granite(for the most part), climbing crack systems and patina-like faces and the decent is a straightforward short rap and walk-off.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Approach as for Camponile Esloveno. DO NOT go down the streambed along cairns at la Tapia. This is a sure way to bushwhack all the way to the base.
