To reach the Zona de Alcatraz:

From town, gain the railroad tracks and follow them past the Madonna (on the right side of the tracks) and the base camp facility (several hundred yards further on the left side of the tracks).

About 100 yards after the base camp facility (on the left), you'll come to a section of the railroad tracks with trees on both sides of the tracks. In another 50-75 yards you'll reach the Zona de Alcatraz.

On the right side of the tracks, at the base of the cliff, is a short, square, cement post that is painted yellow with black stripes (some type of marker for the RR). This is pretty much directly below Tutti Fruiti.

The trail to access the ledge for Tuitti Fruiti, Dirty Girl, et al, is a few yards back toward the base camp facility and Madonna from this yellow and black cement post.

Total approach time from town to this sector is about 20 minutes. Dec 25, 2016
