Description 

This massive wall/mountain which faces town and camp is home to the famous testpiece El Sendero Luminoso. The 12th edition of Magic Ed's guide lists only a handful of routes, so there is likely great new route potential. The wall has a lot of aspects but generally faces N or NE and is a shady place.

Getting There 

Decent trails lead from the vicinity of Tami's to the crags. Allow at least half an hour for the approach. For more details, see guidebook.
