This is situated at the extreme left end of the crag and is characterised by a steep prow which is shaped like the continent of South America. To the right of this are two very steep grooves above a steep wall.
Sunshine Factor : Afternoon Sun - West Facing Approach : 15 minutes Crag Angle : Vertical Face
Grade: D First Ascent: -1991 Rating: Zero Stars The hanging crack in a scoop about four metres to the left of the tip of South America!
(2) Straight Crack
Grade: VD First Ascent: -1991 Rating: Zero Stars The obvious wide crack immediately to the right.
Grade: D First Ascent: -1973 Rating: Zero Stars Start one metre to the right and gain a shallow niche, then finish up the crack above.
(4) West Coast
Grade: D First Ascent: -1973 Rating: 1 Star - Start at the tip of South America and climb the left edge of the continent to finish up an easy crack.
(5) Sendero Luminoso
Grade: HS 4b First Ascent: (Pre-1991) Rating: 1 Star - Start as for West Coast. Climb into the niche, then move up right and follow a thin crack in the centre of the face. A long reach gains a good break and good holds lead directly to the top.
(5a) Little Che
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: -2001 - By: 2001 Feb 25 Calum Berry solo An alternative finish to San Antonio. From the top of the initial crack, reach right for a jug, then layback up the arÍte above.
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: (Pre-1995) Rating: Zero Stars Start as for West Coast and climb the right-slanting crack to the first break, then continue up the centre of the `continent` above.
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: (Pre-1991) Rating: 1 Star - A great little climb both technical and strenuous. Start just left of the obvious vertical crack three metres right of the tip of South America. Climb the thin, left-trending crack to gain good footholds, then finish up the overhanging flake on good holds.
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: -1974 Rating: 1 Star - Very sustained and fine in the lower half. Start at the foot of the very thin vertical crack immediately right of Belize. Climb this crack by an awkward layback from the right. The steep corner above is easier than it looks.
(8a) American Dream
Grade: 6b An interesting problem up the centre of the smooth wall between Sandinista and San Miguel.
