DescriptionThis is the first route that you will encounter on the approach from the main trail and monster/dinosaur rock. The climb starts to the left of a very obvious gully/chimney.
Climb past seven bolts up along left slanting cracks to an anchor below the orange ceiling.
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.
This is the first route that you will encounter on the approach from the main trail and monster/dinosaur rock. The climb starts to the left of a very obvious gully/chimney.
The climb roughly follows the green dashed line on the photo of this face.
