The two obvious bulges in the mountain range, nicknamed Las Tetas de Cayey. The location of the mountain peak provides a panoramic view into the mountain range to the north and out to the coast to the south. Peak elevation: 2,762 feet / 842 m.

Multi-pitch climbing on pillowed basaltic-andesite flows and volcanic conglomerates.

Cerro Las Tetas is located in the municipality of Salinas, not Cayey, but traditionally it's referred to as Las Tetas de Cayey, possibly because the mountain range is called La Sierra de Cayey (which happens to span multiple municipalities).

Food:

After a hard day of climbing, go to Ramonita's Tacos for a cold beer and tacos. A must do! It's in the town of Cayey:

If you are looking for a vegan option you must try Peace and Loaf in Cayey. The food and atmosphere is fabulous.

Getting There Suggest change

TOURISTS!  Please try to go weekdays since you're free any day of the week. This crag has been seeing more and more climbers and the parking lot has been filling up on weekends.

Park at:  18.093649, -66.226241    goo.gl/maps/zHAPuZULx5prbukS6

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.

Hike up the obvious trail for about 10-15 minutes to reach the Right Teta. From there, a trail leads to the Left Teta (you can find more details on its sub-page).
