Clean varied crack climbing up the prow of Aguja El Marinero.

P1) Approach the route from the right side the big slab/butress at the base of the wall. Scramble diagonally left until you reach the base of a dihedral, belay from there (5.7, 70m).

P2) Climb up the dihedral, and follow cracks, passing a few small ledges along the way (5.10a).

P3) Continue straight up, surpassing a small roof by going around on its left side (5.11a).

P4) Go up along some big blocks till reaching a ledge at the base of a good hand crack in a dihedral (5.10c).

P5) Follow the perfect handcrack all the way till it splits and becomes a finger crack to the left. Reach a ledge (5.11a).

P6) Climb the Y shaped offwidth by its right (5.8-ish) until reaching a sloping ledge at the base of a double dihedral. Continue up, passing a roof at its end and reach a huge ledge (5.11b).

P7) Go up the OW crack at the very back of the ledge, reaching a small ledge and continuing up another short dihedral. Scramble to the top (5.10d).

DESCENT: Follow the rappel route to the left of the Como Todo Vicio route. 5 60-meter rappels will take you to the ground.


Walk upstream from the Refugio about an hour to the Laguna. Aguja El Marinero looms above.


Double rack of Camalots from #.2 to #3, single #4, aliens, nuts and two 60-meter ropes. The crux is OW, but protects well with small cams in a thin crack inside.
