BETA PHOTO: Cuchesta's west face.


Cuchesta is a large boulder comprised of mixed rock and landings. There are potential problems on each face, but the rock quality may be an issue. Any ascent requires a downclimb of the northwest face.

Getting There 

From the parking area, head straight north, pass Tweeter, head slightly northeast from there, and the boulder will be visible. Reference the page map for a precise location.
