Top-roping

Description 

This is the biggest and best section of rock at Pucusana. Climb 30 feet of juggy, hueco climbing to a ledge and then make a couple thin (crux) moves up along the left arete. Find a good jug on the arete and then mantle up on to a big ledge.

Location 

Fairly obvious once you get to the crag. Opposite the big free-standing block.

Protection 

There are 3 bolts at the top for toproping. One of which is about 15 feet above the route, so to use all 3 bolts to set up a toprope you need one 15 ft piece of webbing. You can also plug in a small cam and/or nut if you want. To lead the route, bring a rack of nuts and a few mediums sized cams. Beware of the poor rock quality if placing gear.
