Description 

It's located in the area of Refugio Portinari, and it is the formation that rises immediately to the left once we cross the Arroyo de la Guardia Vieja, about 2 kilometers before arriving at the Refugio.

Its North wall offers a very interesting variety of trad and sport routes, with cracks, corners, and chimneys in very good rock. It's very recommended for those who enjoy climbing with cams but with belay stations, rappel routes and well protected exposed passages.

It's a formation that invites to climb even in days of regular weather, all year long, because of its North orientation and its location, much lower than the needles of El Cajon.

Getting There 

From the Refugio Portinari following the path that starts after the second sharp curve of the road.

An ultra classic for the area characterized by varied climbing, lots of crack climbing and great rock.P1) Climb a low angle slab to a nice, tight finger dihedral. Then jam your way up the side of a boulder and head slightly left to a short hand crack to a 2 bolt belay below a roof. You can extend the belay back down to the ledge if you use the rope (5.10d, 35m).P2) Crux pitch. Excellent rock throughout and awesome climbing. Technical crux tips crack at the start to a rest.
