      Al primer Monolito se puede acceder por la ruta provincial 13 que une la cuidad de mendoza con la localidad cordillerana de Uspallata. Cuando se construyo la Ruta Nacional 7 esta ruta quedo con muy poco uso por la dificultad de la misma y con el correr de los años la ruta se fue deteriorando cada vez mas hasta que a la fecha solamente se puede acceder a la misma con un vehículo de tracción en la 4 ruedas. Lo bueno es que esta ruta gana altura muy rápidamente y a unos 20 kilómetros de la ciudad de mendoza se puede alcanzar una altura de 2000 msnm. Esto nos deja en la puerta de una red de senderos que se pueden utilizar para volver a la ciudad con un desnivel muy importante en pocos kilómetros por lo que nos encontramos con senderos muy técnicos e empinados.

      The first monolith can be accessed by provincial route 13 connects the city of mendoza to the mountainous town of Uspallata. When the national route 7 was built this was route with very little use because of the difficulty of it and over the years route deteriorated more and more until to date only you can access it with a traction vehicle in 4 wheels. Good thing is that this route gains height quickly and about 20 kilometers from the city of mendoza is can reach a height of 2000 m.

      This leaves us in the door of a network of trails that can be used to return to the city with a very important difference in few kilometers by what we find very technical and steep trails.
