Dead tired on the summit of Lost at Sea...

Description 

No longer unclimbed!!! Huge wall with lots of potential, although mostly for slab routes. 1 route completed, another one started. More like jungle mountaineering than a rock route. Seemingly endless granite slab interspersed with grass and cactus.

This is definitely one of the most impressive summits in the valley. Huge elevated plateau surrounded on all sides by 200m-plus cliffs. The summit ridge makes up the eastern part of the summit plateau and is well defined. Looking off the 300-400m VERTICAL east face is pretty wild. Not sure if that face will go free, but definitely a lot of route potential.

Getting There 

Behind Cumbira, hike past the approach for Cumbira (from the village of Cumbira) to reach all East Face and South shoulder routes if you are looking for a FA. If you want to do "Lost at Sea", see route description and map.

This is a true adventure route with a mix of moderate rock climbing, jungle mountaineering and steep slab-hiking. Do not expect a nice clean day out on the rock. It's pretty grueling and route-finding can be a challenge, but the summit is more than worth it. The 'crux' of the route comes in two sections with 3 pitches of moderate climbing each. The route traverses at nearly a 45 degree angle across the face, making rappels difficult and quite dangerous if you get rained off the summit. The ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
