Description

When the stairs from the pool area hit the wall, this is Cat Wall. The stairs meet the wall about at "Cat Daddy" and "The Cat's Meow".

Access issues inherited from El Potrero Chico

Most of the climbing here is in a State Park and there is no fee to enter. Please help maintain a clean environment in order to help maintain these privileges.

Ethic inherited from Nuevo León

Please don´t litter, some crags like LaHuasteca are a little runout, but thats how they were set, please avoid adding bolts. Rebolting efforts are much apreciated, just send a heads up to the local climbing comunity for safety reasons.

Another classic in EPC. Climbs the big obvious flake feature. Don't wander onto the face, just really get into that crack.

FA: Harvey Pena & Ralph Vega

1 5.10a
2 5.11a
3 5.10a
4 5.9

Needs a 70m rope. Pitch 2, at roof -- 3 lines of bolts diverge, left goes nowhere, center goes over roof at 5.11a, right goes around roof and back at 5.10d.

Also, a 70m rope won't descend the first pitch, rap to the anchor for A Gringo At My Baby instead.

Starts just ro the right of Blind Faith. Climb the crack up to the small right-facing corner to a crack finish.

FA: Dane Bass & Matt Grecco

Starts below a detached block about 8feet up the wall, five feet right of A Gringo Ate My Baby, then heads up and slightly left to a thin crack.

A bit run-out in places.

Listed as 5.9+ in the (Ed's) book, the route setter (Dane Bass) calls it an honest 5.8.

(Dane's book lists it as 5.9) The name of the route is written with red ink (hard to find).

FA: Richard Ross

Its a very nice and easy roof with huge holds, easy to read.

FA: Nathalie Challulau - 2002

Excellent route with nice holds!
