Poco de Patagonia tackles the central system of dihedrals on the smaller (350m) Aprendiz del Brujo. The first ascentionists rated this climb 5.10+, but it is no doubt 5.11.

8-10 pitches of sustained 5.10/.11 crack climbing that is reminiscent of the Rostrum in Yosemite(including a burly off-width). There are two distinct cruxes: The top of pitch one has a section of delicate and technical face climbing and pitch 5 is a long 50m corner with a thin fingers/tips section at the top(See Video in area section for some footage of this amazing pitch).

5 double raps return you to the bottom. The descent is easy, follow the route of ascent.

One of the best routes I've ever climbed and worth every star.
