Located away from the bulk of the crags at Desplomilandia, the long low walls of Poza de la Mona offer two distinctly different climbing areas. The left end of the crag gives some interesting lines, mainly following wide cracks and vertical walls that, although not particularly impressive, are on good rock and in the shade for a large part of the day. The right-hand side of the crag is much larger and steeper and has some fine routes on a compact and steep face.
