DescriptionStart a few feet right of the previous route in a groove/trough.
Climb past two bolts then red, gold and blue cams to get you to the 4th bolt of the previous route to the left to reach its communal anchor.
LocationThere are about ten fun, moderate routes that are down around the corner to the left of Filo Suroeste. To approach these climbs, hike up the main trail as if you are going toward the Bernalina face. About 100 yards before Bernalina, take a side path that goes up the hillside. This side path leaves the main trail near a wire basket filled with rocks (see descriptive pictures).
Go uphill about 50 vertical feet on the side path to a boulder that is painted like a monster/dinosaur. This boulder is on top of the shoulder/ridge that comes off the Pena.
Follow a path down the back side of the shoulder/ridge, staying at the base of the rock. In about 100 yards, you'll come to a face with a series of left-slanting cracks that look a bit like a corrugated metal roof. There is a long, orange ceiling above this face. These are the rightmost, upper routes on this wall.
At the left end of this face, there's a drop off of about 20 vertical feet.
Start a few feet right of the previous route in a groove/trough. This groove/trough is about 20 feet to the right of the 20-foot high drop off.
This route roughly follows the red dotted line on the overview picture of the face.
