A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

To reach the last five routes on this wall take a right once you hit the wall coming from the parking area. This route is the first line of bolts on the left. Climb straight up on small edges and side pulls to the chain anchor.

24 Hechicera / Necesito Mi Padre

3 meters right of 'Unknown'. Climb the clean face up and trend right to chain anchor under small cactus. Sharing anchors with 'Cat Gut'.

25 Cat Gut / The Alvinator

5 meters right of 'Hechicera'. Climb the clean gray rock straight up the anchor on 'Hechicera'. (sharing anchor)

5.10d Sport 30m, 10
26 Cat Scratch Fever

3 meters right of 'Cat Gut'. Follow obvious black water streak to cold shut anchor. The climb starts with a slab and quickly turns into a vertical face climb. Clipping the 3rd bolt is a little sketchy because the fall is directly over the slab start. There is an intermediate anchor for rapping down.

1.2. Crescent Moon Buttress 1 route in Cliff


Long/Lat: -100.587814, 25.952013


Technically this crag is not part of Culo de Gato, but is another buttress in the same formation.

RouteGradeStyleSelected ascents
1 Crescent Moon Buttress

The first two pitches can be linked. After that I wouldn't recommend due to rope drag over loose rock and vegetation. The fourth pitch is the 10a. On the sixth pitch you rappel down to a notch and climb the last two. On the descent you rappel down to the notch again and use the anchors right on your face (or chest if you are tall) to rappel (walk) down to another anchor which takes you straight down to the ground with a single 70m rope (this new anchor was added recently).
