Sheltered

The appropriately-named large cave is to the left of where the approach path arrives at the crag. The routes are mostly hard, steep and polished and give great entertainment for both climber and spectator alike. To the left and around the arete there is a small collection of easier routes, they are short and unremarkable but pleasant enough for all that. Guidebook page 382.

Head straight up the wall and through the bulges to the cave. Very pumpy, and the polished footholds don't help.

Phythophthora cithrophthora
The broad blunt rib has a stubborn bloc move early on, and jugs beyond. Finishing up Quien Molonda makes a better route.

The tilted wall is climbed on tufas and pockets. Great moves, but often wet. The original right-hand start maybe 7c.
