Peña Sirio

International > Europe > Spain > La Pedriza

Description

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.

Getting There

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.
