The Upper Crag has 4 main areas near one another but require scrambeling between them. Instructions are written below. The veiw from the Upper Crag is amazing. Most routes are super crimpy and more difficult than those on the Lower Crag.
The Upper Crag is just another five minute hike past the Lower Crag. Once the trail runs into the Lower Crag you will have the option of taking the trail left to the main area of the Lower Crag or right. Take the trail right. It is an obvious trail that will take you up through step like rock formations. Continue on those and once you have pulled youself over a high step ledge that has two U bolts to help you over you are almost there. The trail will take you left and the first climb will be to your right near a small tree that leans over the edge of the mountain. This climb is called Corosion and will be a face climb with distinct yellow patches on the entire face. Continue past this climb on the trail and you will arrive at a small open area with a large flat boulder on the ground with another climb on your right, Entropia. At this point you will have two directions that you can take to different areas for more climbs.

This route is just to the left of Nido de Falcones, which shares the same belay spot. Both climbs are great, especially if you haven't been climbing long. The crux is at the end of the climb where you have some small balancy holds followed by a great one just before the anchors. Our friend told us that both of these climbs held the same name - Nido de Falcones. However, we thought it deserved its own since they are completely different climbs....[more] Browse More Classics in International
