This is a great first route at Cojitambo. The 5.8 crux is right off the ground up to the second bolt, then it is a really nice pocketed cruiser to the top. The route gives a good feel for the rock. The top of the second pitch is dirty so just be aware. It isn't anything someone climbing at 5.8 can't easily breeze by, but expect a bit of dirt. Rappel off the anchors on the top pitch with two 60 meter rope rappels, or tie two 60 meter ropes together to make a single rap. Be sure to hike to the top and check out the Canari and Inca ruins!

Note that this is the rappel route for all the lines at Cojitambo.


This route is dead center in the middle of Cojitambo. The climbers trail that leaves the lookers left of the town square leads directly to the abandoned grotto for which this area is named. Hike up and right of the grotto to the bottom of a gulley. The climb goes up the left side of the gulley. Keep left of the big bush as the right route on the left gulley face goes at 5.10.


Well bolted. Maybe 10 bolts per pitch.
