  • Description 

    A shaded crag tucked between large river rocks, a sandy river bank, and a polished cliff. Crowded on weekends with guided climbing tours from Parque Aventura.

    Getting There 

    Drive to Parque Aventura, which involves crossing two small bridges. There is a public parking lot near the first bridge. Pay to enter Parque Aventura and walk to the other end of the park towards the other side of the canyon where zip lining happens. After about one minute of walking, the road passes through a gate that says private property. Walk along that road for three to five minutes. On the right at an intersection of a dirt trail is a sign that says "muro de escalar". Follow the trail down for another five minutes until you come to a field of broken tree trunks and river swept wood. Routes are at the base of the cliff there.

    A challenging route on polished feet. There are good hand holds once you find them. The crux is at the fourth bolt, an overhung bulge with friction feet to the left or the option of going right and doing a strengthy lieback. After moving around and over the bulge, you're in an awkward, crouched position with arched back, trying to clip the next bolt. The third and fourth bolts were reachy for me. (I'm 5'3".)At the top is ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
