Beschreibung El Potrero Chico - La Selva/The Jungle - Space Boyz

Space Boyz, besides Timewave Zero the most popular climb at El Potrero Chico. Leaving the place without done it is like being in Paris without seeing the Eifel Tower.

The first for pitches are easy. The fun starts with a 5.10a, 10d and a 10b at the 5th pitch. Many parties have a while for those 3 pitches. The last 4 are easy again. However, the last 5.9 is loose, kind of scary and special care is needed not to drop rocks.

Do not leave anything at the base of the climb. Stuff gets stolen! Either take your bag up the the first belay and hang it to a bolt or back light when leaving in the morning

The climb faces East/South East. However, it takes a while before the sun hits, especially the first pitches.
