This needle rises immediately to the left of El Cajon, right at the South of Aguja Cara del Inca. It has a triangular shape and it is surrounded by deep gullies.

Its main characteristic is its great block of about 40 meters, which is located in its summit edge and which is called the ship's prow, due to the appearance given by its aretes while approaching the needle.

Getting There 

From the entrance to El Cajon, it's possible to approach in a direct way using some natural gullies which take to the Christ. There is a very comfortable path from the Refugio that takes in a long diagonal of gentle inclination to the Christ.

Good route for warming up and practice placing gear. Last pitch is the best! First pitch requires a bit of route finding skills.P1) Scramble up easy terrain. Belay at a big boulder (5.5, 50m).P2) Continue up and left, following corners diagonally (5.7, 40m).P3) Follow the same dihedral for another long pitch (5.8, 45m).P4) Finish the corner system, going to the top of the prow (5.9, 45m).DESCENT: Rappel the route....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
