Overhung limestone with routes mostly 5.11 and above. The rock is slightly flaky, but the holds are usually solid and there are several excellent jug-hauls. Routes are graded for the endurance required for their length.

Lower in elevation than Bogota and warmer than Suesca, the area is popular with climbers looking for better weather or for escape from rain under its massive overhangs.

Son una cantidad de techos muy bonita con presas muy buenas, en techos muy largos hay desde un 10b hasta treces muy duros y algunas fisuras la mayoria de rutas estan protegidas con chapas. Es una zona para escaladores de nivel medio-alto, pues no hay nada abajo de 10b y solo un par de 10s.

Getting There 

Autoposta norte hacia Tunja, después de pasar el embalse El Sisga, desvia a la derecha por la carretera que va a Machetá. Pase el pueblo, y siga por la misma carretera unos 10-15 minutos más abajo busque la quebrada "Agua Blanca". Desde allí ya ve las rocas arriba.
