The Momia Area is a popular section of the Frontales with a great line-up of long single-pitch climbs. The older multi-pitch lines see little traffic and have older bolts. The climbs do go into the shade in the late afternoon. There is little opportunity for climbing in the rain. Guidebook page 76.
