Description 

Start five feet right of the last climb at a line of bolts and just right of an obvious, mossy right facing corner.

Climb past eight bolts to an anchor below an orange ceiling.

Location 

There are about ten fun, moderate routes that are down around the corner to the left of Filo Suroeste. To approach these climbs, hike up the main trail as if you are going toward the Bernalina face. About 100 yards before Bernalina, take a side path that goes up the hillside. This side path leaves the main trail near a wire basket filled with rocks (see descriptive pictures).

Go uphill about 50 vertical feet on the side path to a boulder that is painted like a monster/dinosaur. This boulder is on top of the shoulder/ridge that comes off the Pena.

Follow a path down the back side of the shoulder/ridge, staying at the base of the rock. In about 100 yards, you'll come to a face with a series of left-slanting cracks that look a bit like a corrugated metal roof. There is a long, orange ceiling above this face. These are the rightmost, upper routes on this wall.

At the left end of this face, there's a drop off of about 20 vertical feet.

Start five feet right of the leftmost climb on the upper tier at a line of bolts and just right of an obvious, mossy right facing corner. This line of bolts is about 15 feet right of the drop off between the upper and lower faces.

The route roughly follows the yellow dashed line on the picture of this face.

Protection 

Eight bolts and a two bolt anchor. 20m

This is the red line in the beta photo. Getting to and past the first bolt is the crux, we called it .8/.9.
