The Upper Sectors of Cumbre and Zona del Buho (not described here) are perched high on the hillside south (left looking in) of Peņas del Rey. The main attraction of the upper walls is the long slabby Sector Cumbre. This gives a good selection of mid-grade routes with just the slight drawback of the steep ankle-scratching approach slog. APPROACH - From the small parking area (see the general approach with the introduction) walk a little further up the track and find a faint path. The left-hand branch leads straight up the hill, along a sporadically-cairned path, to Sector Cumbre. Guidebook page 94.
