A compact area with a good spread of problems centred around the totally unique 10 metre arch.

Please be aware the area is both a nature reserve and historically significant site so behave responsibly. Whilst climbing is permitted, it goes without saying leave the area as you found it, removing any litter, tick marks and excessive chalking.
From the parking head towards the ravine but follow the tourist path left between the enclosures (signed ‘Sendero de la Penitas’). Follow this to a hairpin right but continue straight on towards a small building and walls. For the first boulders follow the small valley up towards the obvious large buttress. Alternatively for the main boulders continue up the faint ridgeline to the left and head underneath and round the back of the large buttress. Around 20-25 minutes from the car.
