This is a large north facing drainage forming an anphitheatre with tall steep walls on all sides. There is a lot of rock up there. North means South down here so generally the climbing is nice and sunny. A new trail has been recently cut thus making this another major destination in the valley to hit, taking about 2 to 3 hours to the climber camp. It is a beautiful area and a bit more wild feeling. The upside of the hike up there is that the rock is naturally pretty clean and solid.
This hanging valley is located a ways off the main valley floor. You can see it on the hike in way up on your right, across from Arco Iris. To get there, hike from the Refugio following the signed trail "Trinidad" and "Anfiteatro". The trail splits off the Trinidad trail 10 min. in. Fork right and is easy to follow initally to the waterfall area then gets steep. The trail is well maked with orange tags and goes through gorgeous alerce forest.

This climb barges up the middle of Escudo, the proud wall at the head of the Anfiteatro. The rock is really good, the position is amazing and the summit views are sublime. The downside is this climb has one of the longest approaches in Cochamo. P1 From the big ledge at the base of the face, climb a funky, wide crack that goes up left, 5.9, 100'. P2 Head up the rad fist crack that widens to a chimney. At the top of the chimney, clip a bolt and face climb up right to a ledge, 5.11-, 150'. P3 Fa...[more] Browse More Classics in International
