This group of needles and towers concentrate the major part and the most varied climbing possibilities that have been explored in Arenales.

Its rock is generally good and its crack systems of great continuity in an environment of walls, pillars, aretes and sharp summits have granted this place preferred consideration from climbers that visit Los Arenales. To this we must add the work of equipping belay stations and rappels which complete a combination of adventure and security in its right proportion in a land of great ambiance.

Getting There 

This group is located in the East cord of El Cajon, it is very visible from the area of the Refugio. However, due to its complex system of gullies and aretes superimposed with each other, it is difficult the individualization of some smaller summits.

As main points of reference for its localization and access, we can mention the rocky slope of big blocks that develops from the base of this group until the valley of El Cajon, at about 300m of the Refugio.

It is possible to begin the access from a not very visible path which follows the left margin of the rocky slope. As we climb, these blocks they become smaller until they turn into gravel (Altitude gain of 350m / 45min-1hr).

From this point you can clearly observe a chimney with a big chockstone (slightly to the left) and a gully of small rocks to the right. Traverse to the right until reaching the base of this gully and ascend it. From this point it is possible to clearly visualize Aguja Campanille Alto, which will make it easier the localization and approach to the needles that conform this group.
