Lovely climbing area with beautiful surroundings with 3000m peaks all around, its located beetwen 1639m and 1900m, so its perfect for summer climbing when the weather is to hot in the valley it will be cool up here, on the other hand the winter will be very cold and the area will be covered with snow,the best times will be from may to october.
The climbing is on perfect quality granite over lying walls, the grades are low so its a perfect area for beginners or to put your adherence skills to the test, all routes are bolted and with abseils.

1- Duros son los comienzos.
2- El Cacique.
Sector Casa de piedra.

2- La de los hombres mayores.
3- Flor de helin.
The first two sectors are located around the balnerio area and the third up the Calderas river towards the Ibones Azules lakes, after 35 to minutes we arrive,the mountains around include the Infiernos, Garmo negro, Algas and Argualas with lovely mountain climbing in summer and winter.
