Description 

A formation on the ridge near M2 and Abuelo with a bulbous upper half with some routes on the east and north faces.
Easy approach and an alternative option if there are people on M2/Abuelo cragging routes.

Baby Boom (6b) and Lobo Blanco (6b) seem to be a couple of the more popular routes, both on the east face.

Getting There 

Hike out on the ridge separating the basins, not far past M2

Thin face moves bring you up and left. The route goes left of the bulge and is 6b, but you can do a variation through th...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
