Aka: El Penasco Negro.

It is a huge, black boulder with a number of AMAZING, double digit projects. Currently the landings are not good, but we're working on it. You will get messed up if you fall, and you WILL fall.

The rock is very good and is mostly huge moves on small to very small sharp incut crimps, with poor feet, to butt-puckering top outs.

Eds. there were 2 projects entered previously for this area that were deleted upon request by the original poster.

Getting There 

This is a few hundred yards down river from the Graveyard Boulders up on the hill. It is huge and overhangs at a solid 45 degrees, you can't miss it.
