Summary

Nice sector for more experienced climbers.

Description

The sector, Planeta Zarza is a great area for experienced climbers who are able to climb routes graded 6 and higher. The climbing is quite technical here.. The sector was newly bolted as we've been there in the beginning of 2016.

Access issues

Please use the marked path down to the canyon and take all your belongings (including any waste) with you when leaving. Thank you! Super special thanks to everyone who takes also waste that was not originally brought by them!
