This is a large north facing drainage forming an anphitheatre with tall steep walls on all sides. There is a lot of rock up there. North means South down here so generally the climbing is nice and sunny. A new trail has been recently cut thus making this another major destination in the valley to hit, taking about 2 to 3 hours to the climber camp. It is a beautiful area and a bit more wild feeling. The upside of the hike up there is that the rock is naturally pretty clean and solid.
Routes not to miss are the 12-pitch 5.11+ Al Centro y Adentro, Para Chuparse los Dedos and 12-pitch 5.11b Excelente Mi Teniente.
This hanging valley is located a ways off the main valley floor. You can see it on the hike in way up on your right, across from Arco Iris. To get there, hike from the Refugio following the signed trail "Trinidad" and "Anfiteatro". The trail splits off the Trinidad trail 10 min. in. Fork right and is easy to follow initally to the waterfall area then gets steep. The trail is well maked with orange tags and goes through gorgeous alerce forest.
There is a climb called 'Paths of Rightousness' (5.12?) established by some Americans that is not quite at the end of the valley on the left. Excellent Mi Teniente (5.11) and La Hora es Ahora (5.11+) are visible on a Espejo about halfway up the valley on the left, and are accessed by a traversing left along the walls at the valley's end. The climb 'Cien Anos de Soledad' (5.10,A2 or 5.11) is on the taller wall on the right at the back of the valley which is named Cerro Walwalun and was climbed by French climbers in 2001. Escudo is the beautiful wall at the head of the valley and has a couple climbs, including 'La Luna' (5.10), and 'Flakes of Wrath' (5.11+).

A high quality line (for 5 pitches) up the right side of Cerro Espejo. Many parties just do the first 5 pitches and rappel, but the summit of Espejo is worth visiting at least once. It is guarded by 5 more pitches of chossy, vegetated, and runout climbing at the 5.7 grade. If you go to the top, try not to knock anything down and kill the parties below you.P1) Up the RF corner, step right to a short splitter finger to hand crack and the bolted anchor. 60M 5.10-P2) Fantastic RF fingers/lieback cor...[more] Browse More Classics in International
