Description Suggest change

A crag with sharp dark gray limestone similar to the one in Playa Puerto Hermina (Quebradillas) but with the grooved rock face pattern and climbing style found in Pasillo Frío (Juana Díaz).

Eight routes ranging from 5.5 to 5.10b. In addition, just to the right of the 5.5 route, is a second rock face with five anchors on it. The leftmost of those five anchors is a bolted route, while the other four do not have any additional bolts yet.

A few minutes of hiking will get you to the crag, placing you in front of the route Danielito with its recognizable low-angle slab. From there, you have routes up the trail to the left and routes a few steps to the right.
