About 20 minutes walk from the upper cable car station in the direction of La Vueltona we can find a very compact rocky area where there are several open routes described in "La Guía de Picos" climbing guidebook. There are four semi-equipped routes with a total of eight pitches perfect for a good day climbing on excellent rock.
Chuchaqui (V+ obligatory) is the easiest of all. The most difficult moves are well-protected, but the anchors are getting farther apart in the easiest sections. The rock is perfect. You can get down abseiling in one go.
La Casa donde Nací (V+ obligatory) is a bit more difficult but equally recommendable.
- The first pitch concentrates its difficulty at the beginning of a dihedral protected by two pitons, there are also a few bolts and it can be well-protected with friends.
- The second pitch is beautiful, it consists of a wall with an exceptional rock equipped with bolts, it is a good idea to take the red or green Camalot with you before reaching the bolts. All the belay stations are equipped with bolts.
Cha Chai (6b+ obl) is an option if we want to test ourselves on more difficult grades.
- They have the first pitch equipped with a fairly hard move, the rock pinches a bit.
- The second pitch is more beautiful. It overcomes a small roof well-protected by a bolt that leads to easier terrain on very good rock with grooves. Take Camalot n°2 and 3 to place protection in the grooves.
Guerra del Coltán (6b+ obligatory). A climb on perfect rock but where you have to squeeze your fingers to get between the protections. Tight grade.
