Location 

To get to the route, you have to drive up Arenales road from the village of El Manzano Historico for about 10km. You will pass three creeks. Watch out not to trash your rental car if the water is high! The best way to get there is to hire Yagua at the Manzano who has a van and can bring you up. On the way up, the third creek is called Arroyo de la Guardia Vieja. You can park on your left a bit past the creek. Hike up the creek for about 30 minutes. You will soon see a breast shape cliff on your left, the "Tapia del Chorro" which means "cliff of the creek". The route starts at the foot of this cliff. Finding the start is a bit tricky. Refer to the picture. There is supposed to be a bolted route on the left side of this route but we never found it.

Protection 

Bolted anchors, standard rack
