This is the obvious large fin of rock located on the left side of the road as you start getting into the park. The rock is a hard grey limestone. There are many sport routes and a few trad routes here. The climbs generally appear to be well-bolted, but there are probably exceptions.

Getting There 

Drive past the fin for about 200 yards to a right turn with a sign marking the "bajada al rio" (descent to the river). Drive a very short way to the picnic table and park. Walk about 5 minutes to the fin. You may be able to park closer but please make sure you are well off of the road.

Follow the bolt line as it wanders up the face. This climb is much more fun than it looks from the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

This is the same area as El Reliz, only it was created by some folks before I further developed La Presa on MP.
