This is the first group of needles immediately to the left once you have entered the valley of El Cajon.

Its forms rise up very slender although the rock is of varied quality, sometimes with a quite loose grain especially at the base of the needles but always with good possibilities of placing protection.

The lines, sometimes discontinuous but with some very beautiful and sustained pitches, suggest climbing which requires good interpretation of the terrain.

The following needles are located here: Aguja Cara del Inca, Muralla Oculta, Aguja Casimiro Ferrari, Aguja America, Aguja Nuez, Aguja Alta Nuez and Aguja Drusito.

Good route for warming up and practice placing gear. Last pitch is the best! First pitch requires a bit of route finding skills.P1) Scramble up easy terrain. Belay at a big boulder (5.5, 50m).P2) Continue up and left, following corners diagonally (5.7, 40m).P3) Follow the same dihedral for another long pitch (5.8, 45m).P4) Finish the corner system, going to the top of the prow (5.9, 45m).DESCENT: Rappel the route....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
