Description 

Pared Tetris is part of a larger peak that can also be accessed from El Anfiteatro (I need beta here for the actual name of the peak if anyone knows). Said peak is located just north of the laguna, with Pared Tetris being the blocky south face that can be seen from the laguna.

Pared Tetris is on a south-facing corner of the east face of Cerro Laguna. The map on the wall of Refugio Cochamó shows a summit elevation of 1678m. Besides Blockhead, another notable route on Tetris is Humpty Dumpty. The route starts a bit left of the prominent cave. The heart of the climb is the first 6 pitches which work up in difficulty from 5.9 to 11a. At the top of pitch 6, climbers can rap off or continue on to the summit of Cerro Laguna via multiple pitches of easy/moderate slab climbing and scrambling.
