Interesting basalt formation formed roughly 500 years ago during the last volcanic eruption.
Physical endurance based climbing on the left side if the wall, compared to the more technical right side.
Grab a cab from the city of Boquete to "Los Ladrillos". When you arrive, you will see the crag on your left, it is only 20m off the road.
Where to stay
There are plenty of hostels in the town of Boquete, but no camping in the area.
Chalk usage is welcomed, although hold chipping is frowned upon, as well as bolting.
This crag was developed in 2003-2004 and has been enhanced in the years since. It was bolted by a small group of climbers led by one Gary Henning. Since then, the climbing has been maintained by Cesar Melendez, Christian Shreiffer, Dylan Moen Henning, and other local climbers who frequent the crag.
