The roped climbing on La Barrosa is not destination stuff, but it keeps me entertained when I don't feel like taking my rope somewhere else. At any rate, the rock is good quality, and even though the routes are short, they tend to be powerful and gymnastic for the grades. The main sector of el Autodromo has close to 20 routes, at least three of which can be safely led on gear. Most routes are bolted, although some of the bolting might leave something to be desired. As far as I can tell, no one has ever bothered to name these routes, so I will keep with that and use the grade and a brief description to identify each one. A few boulders (including one V10) have also been done in the area, but it's far from being one of the best bouldering spots on La Barrosa.
The area is situated above the Juan Manuel Fangio Racetrack (this is city property). I usually park at (or walk to) a gated entrance to the racetrack that can be accessed from a short dirt road that is the continuation of Calle 40 above its intersection with Calle 55. From the gate, continue walking the dirt road as it traverses the west flank of La Barrosa above the race track for about 1 km. until a small grove of pine trees appears. There is a well-defined trail that climbs fairly straight up the hill past the pine trees to the main sector above.
