The base of the left side of El Escalón

Description 

Fun location with a nice grade range for everyone.

Great rock.

This sector has mostly single pitch routes especially on its lower angle, easier left side and picks up a few multi pitch offerings as one trends to the right.

Several 2 to 3 pitch routes.

El Escalón has 33 routes ranging from lower angle slab routes such as Los Estudiantes, 3+, to La Mona Lisa at 7c+.

While the approach isn’t too bad, the staging area is a touch narrow and above a steep drop off. Take care with the children.

Getting There 

Same approach as for La Selva except pass by and underneath La Selva and continue over to El Escalón.
