Nice climbing, perfect rock.


Follow the crack for 40ft then step left on to the face just below some plant vines. Finish up easy arete to slinged horn.


The obvious right leaning crack 50ft down and left of the main buttress


small/mid size cams, wires.

The obvious horn did not seem very solid to me. We set up a gear anchor and cleaned from Vina Adranza. Most of this climb is great quality rock - too bad it doesn't continue to bolted anchor.

There is currently webbing/nuts comprising an anchor at the end of the crack on the horn. Seemed solid to me. Really fun climbing that kicks back in such a way to make is almost feel overhanging. Super fun.

Nice climb and surprisingly steep. Gear and Sling anchor still looking good, but I would recommend bringing extra webbing for backing it up. Also it might be possible to keep moving up the arete to get to the bolted anchors at the top of Vina Ardanza.
