Description

High quality routes on basalt rock on the other "teta" (the left one).
For the right "teta", which was the originally developed area, go to https://www.mountainproject.com/area/108541266/right-teta

Credit goes to Jorge Rodríguez, Leo Taraborrelli, and Nicole Vidal for cleaning and developing this area for the climbing community to enjoy.  

70 meter rope strongly recommended. Be sure to knot the end of the belay end of your rope on all climbs here.

This area is a bit longer of a hike (add 20 minutes) than the original teta but is totally worth the journey.  

Best time to climb to avoid the sun is after 1pm or so.  Even though it may be hot out, Cayey stays cool in the shade due to altitude.

The left teta has two separate walls but for ease of navigating around the website, all the routes from both walls are included in this sub-area. The left wall is from Peñón del Susto to Ilusión and the right wall is from Guaraguao to Fuliaita.

Getting There

This area is accessed by parking in the same lot as for the right teta. You hike up to the right teta and continue onward to the left teta.

Park at 18.093649, -66.226241 (https://goo.gl/maps/zHAPuZULx5prbukS6) and hike for about 10 minutes to the original wall (the right teta). The map pin is for a private property that has a gate locked with a combination lock. Ask one of the local climbers what the code is for the lock.

Use the same hiking path that will take you to the right teta, pass the main wall, keeping it on your right. Veer towards Pies de Pluma, Dedos de Acero.  When you arrive at Pies de Pluma you will see a rocky trail that descends down into the trees. Follow the trail down, to the right, and then back up again to the wall of the new teta.  The path is well marked and easy to follow. **There is a new trail in the works that veers up after Pies de Pluma. It is marked with orange tape.

When you reach the wall you have a choice to go either left or right to access different groups of routes. If you go left you access the routes from Peñón Del Susto to Ilusión. The first route you encounter as you exit the trail is Demasiado Lechón in the center of the wall. If however, you go right and continue up a steep trail you will arrive at the second wall that has the routes from Guaraguao to Fuliaita. The first route you encounter as you exit the trail is Nellie, which is in the center of the wall.
