This is main face that is always seen from the town of Bernal. It has the most popular routes, most of them are multipitch, while others are single pitch. If you're looking for some solitude while climbing this big monolith, this is NOT the place to climb at.

Getting There 

Follow the main tourist trail that starts at the parking lot. Go all the way till it touches the base of the rock. You'll be at the base of Bernalina.

It was hard to say where the crux was, it was so much fun. Great holds, fat bolts and good climbing up a clean wall. The 4-7 pitches can be tricky due to the low angle and sparsity of bolts but look around....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
