Description

This is the main area with the highest concentration of quality problems, also the best of the sports routes which are found on the wall near the bridge and the large slabs on the opposite side.

Access issues inherited from Barranco de las Peñitas

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.

Approach

Follow the obvious path from the parking passing a big sign towards a concentration of palm trees at the base of the ravine where the first boulders are found.

Ethic inherited from Barranco de las Peñitas

Remove any litter, tick marks and excessive chalking.
