International > N America > Cuba > Vinales > Mogote del Valle > N- Cueva Cabeza de Vaca

Description

After the first couple of bolts you will be saying that it will be a walk in the park.
Get ready for a fight. It is a challenging face climb on small holds a bit runout.
Different than the 3D climbing encountered in the Cueva.

Location

First route of Cabeza de la Vaca on the right side of the cave.
As you walk up the stairs, at the 2/3 you will see a platform on the right.
Go 30ft to the right and belay from the lowest point.
Check for the line of bolts that branches to the right.

Protection

10 bolts + 2 bolts and 1 ring anchor
The first bolt is quite high for on 5.2 terrain.

[Hide Comment] Both the 2009 guide and Eric's descriptions here have Guajiras as easier than Guajiros, but I don't think it is even close. There are two distinct crux sections on Guajiras, the second being just a classic sequence, plus some pump factor near the top. Would be four stars but for the prickly part nearing the anchors.
