El Cañón del Castor is a small shady canyon located up the road towards the reservoir from El Reliz proper. Finding this area can be somewhat difficult as it is difficult to see from the road.

Access issues inherited from La Presa

Sometimes the locals ask for money at la "Caseta de cobro", tell them you are here just to climb at the "reliz" and they should let you pass for free.


Begin the approach approximately 200 meters past El Reliz proper in a small arroyo that does not connect to the road via any defined trail. Look for bolts up and to the right on the canyon’s east side. Routes are listed from right to left.

Ethic inherited from La Presa

Leave no trace! Be careful with the native petroglyphs.

Es la primera ruta que vez cuando llegas al cañonsito del lado derecho. Esta muy divertida! Tiene pasos técnicos que te exigen acomodar el cuerpo una y otra vez.

Es la ruta de en medio de las 3. Es una ruta muy especifica que te obliga a pegar el cuerpo a la pared como lagartija para no caerte y esto hace difícil encontrar las pisaderas pero es una ruta muy divertida! La roca es suave a diferencia de la mayoría de las rutas en la presa.
