Description [Suggest Change]

1- North-oriented, so there's sun all year around.
2- During summer the crag can get quite hot.
3- There is no water available at the crag, so be sure to bring plenty.
4- Routes go from 5a to 6c (5.8 to 5.11b), so ideal for beginners.
5- The crag is mostly equipped with M10 parabolts and raprings at the top.

Credit for all of this information goes to Mijel Lotfi who made it available on his blog several years ago. I only translated the information there, but plan on expanding and improving on it when I get to the crag in a few weeks.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Once you're in the quarry it's a 20 to 40-minute walk from the El Sol outpost. The trail goes over a small hill that leads to the crag (see picture). The trail is part of the normal route for Cerro Dedos, to which you can arrive after about an hour and a half of trekking. It is important to keep an eye on the walk and make sure to turn around and look back on the way in, as it is easy to get lost on the walk-out.
