The crags are in a very pleasant location. Foz de la Canal comes into the sun in the afternoon from about 2.30pm while Las Devotas and Superdevotas are in the shade in the afternoon from about 1pm. Foz de la Canal is best for some very hard routes around 8a and above, it is approached by a short walk and a tricky via ferrata taking 15 minutes in total. Las Devotas is 5 minutes from the road and is best for slightly easier climbs in the range 6a-7c. Further up the hill (20 minuets from the road) is Superdevotas, here the routes are very steep and mostly range from 7c+ to 8b.

a Foz del Canal - Approach: 15mins Aspect: west facing Height: 35m Parking: 76 kilometre. The parking is in a small layby at the 76k marker just after a bridge. Take a path that goes up following the small stream then cross the stream and scramble up to the base of a 30m via ferrata. Climb this with great care up to the cliff
Superdevotas 20 min Las Devotas: Approach: 5mins, Parking 2 min Aspect: east facing, Height: up to 45m Parking: 68.5 kilometre. About 12k south of Bielsa park on the left just before a small tunnel. Look for a small sign "Coto Privado Cala". The cliff can be seen overlooking the road.
Rincon de Sin is a new sector with routes up to 50 metres long. Development continues at a pace by a seemingly very dedicated group of locals as of 2019, with a new guide expected in 2021. Situated a kilometre or so up the valley from Devotas, it enjoys shade from around 12.30 . Park by a football field left of the road before you come to the electrical power station. There is also a large lay-by/picnic are opposite the crag approach for reference and parking. The approach is a steep 30 minutes uphill following cairns and ropes. Many of the routes have name plaques at the base.
