Head up the corner towards a nice left leaning crack. Chug up this and then move right and carry on up a right facing corner to a ledge. Move left across the ledge to finish up the green wall of Tawny Porto.


Right had side of pillar.
Look for the obvious white leaning crack/corner.
See La Rioja for descent


Standard rack.

Really cool climb and a great zone. I highly recommend checking it out. I was psyched to have doubles in .75 and #1 (BD). Other than that a standard rack up to a #3. A 70 meter rope is what you need to get down but watch the ends when rappelling. The webbing above (rap anchor) may need to be replaced for next season (2015). I look forward to climbing all of the routes
