2 * Suspiro Limeño / Andrey and Michel 1 {FR} 6c Sport 12m
3 Uno Para Todos / Andrey and Michel 2 {FR} 7b Sport 12m
4 ** Ayahuaca vision

This is the first set of bolts to the left on the main wall to the right.

Great beginner climb with lots of feet and hand holds, it is well bolted for training lead climbing.

There are so many foot holds that if you move your feet more than 30cm you are doing something wrong

{FR} 4 Sport 20m, 9
5 * San Pedro trip

Starts to the right of Ayahuaca vision, has a really high first bolt due to first two being removed.

As with Ayahuaca vision there are many holds and it is a great climb for beginners and to practice your foot work

If the 12 meters to the first bolt is a bit much, you can take up 2 slings and sling the bollards. Note that bolt count does not account for the slings

{FR} 4 Sport 20m, 7
6 * Chuchuwasi Power

Down to the left of the bolder leaning against the wall, this climb is the left of the two.

As with the theme of this wall there are lots of foot and hand holds making it an ideal spot for beginners and intermediate climbers to practice their technique.

{FR} 5 Sport 27m, 9
7 ** Touching the Bols

First route to the left of the bolder leaning against the wall.

Nice long sustained route. There are anchors at about meter 18, however you can just climb through to the top.

9 ** Chueco Corrupto {FR} 6a Sport 26m
