With an overhanging tree at the top of the route, La Buseta is often used as the rappel spot for a West wall entry. The climb is easily distinguishable by its vertical white watermark and it’s parallel running hand-sized cracks at the top of the route. It is also the most northern (farthest to the right, when facing the wall) route on the west wall. The large cracks on the route allow for trad climbing, although the route is bolted. Expect a tricky start up multiple finger cracks to a rest ledge before moving into the larger hand cracks and layback moves. Continue climbing past the anchors to the extra bolt and then the rappelling tree if you wish to climb out of the ravine.

Ethic: inherited from Forum
Respect the land owners.
They are kind enough to let you use their property for your enjoyment.
Respect other climbers.
Climbing is a community sport where the only opponent is the cruel crux that sends you airborne.
Respect the environment.
Above all, respect the environment. The plants, the earth and the rock itself were here long before you came into existence and will continue to exist long after you are gone. Sustain its survival by treating it properly.
  • Pick up trash, even if it is not your own. Take at least one piece out on every trip.

  • Do not kill flora or fauna, no matter how small or large.

  • Live and climb as though you are organic with your environment.
