This is the most sought-after route for beginners to the area, since it incorporates easy climbing with plenty of options for placing protection. There are a few loose blocks along the way so one must be careful of where to place the gear as well as not to pull on them.

P1. Climb up blocks along the dihedral, aiming for the handcracks on the upper headwall. This is the pitch that all beginners climb.

P2. From the big ledge to the right of the anchor, do a 4th Class scramble for about 30 feet. Once you reach the base of Dos Burros and Crema de Cacahuate, continue left along the wall till you reach the base of another dihedral. Climb the dihedral, trending right and avoiding a series of small roofs above. Follow the easiest path till you reach the anchors. You'll see many old pitons along the way.


This route is located to left of Soñar con Ser Mas. Is's the big dihedral full of blocks.


Standard rack up to #3 Camalot, nuts and a few long runners.
