Crag features

Located away from the bulk of the crags at Desplomilandia, the long low walls of Poza de la Mona offer two distinctly different climbing areas. The left end of the crag gives some interesting lines, mainly following wide cracks and vertical walls that, although not particularly impressive, are on good rock and in the shade for a large part of the day. The right-hand side of the crag is much larger and steeper and has some fine routes on a compact and steep face.

Approach notes

From the main parking area below Desplomilandia, continue along the main road for a further 3km until the crag comes into view on the right. Park next to an abandoned farm below the crag and take a good path up to the crag from where all the climbs are easily reached. 

Access Advice

The local farmer uses the crag to keep his goats under which can make it difficult to reach the starts sometimes.
