Follow the center line up to a second set of anchors. The route has highly technical moves but great holds on each side of the crack. If you are still Keen follow the crack up to the chains in the left corner. Be aware that the rock is of very poor quality for the last 5 meters....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

When I visited a few days ago (12/2016) the women taking tickets at the steps said all the technical climbing routes were closed due to some sort of accident. However, if they re-open, this is best webpage I could find with route listings:

The approach for this is not where the ticketperson is at the base of the stairs. You need to approach from a dirt trail behind the the restaurant la Mona. You will have to bypass fences and signs.

There was a large landslide near la Moto that has wiped out a huge amount of foliage.

It should also be noted that there is an absurd amount of trash at the base of the routes.
