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.

First pitch has been bolted and partially cleaned to provide access to "The Vatican".

Start "Sandra" then move right at the first palm tree to top-rope the smooth concave face.

Old trad route that has been bolted.

Another retro-bolted trad route.

BEWARE: This route is too long even for a 70m rope, lots of loose rock in the rappel, lots of friction, lots of spikey plants. I would stay away from this one.

To rap on one rope, use anchor from "Sin Soul" as an intermediate.

Might find 3-4 bolts per pitch, but should bring gear.

Route should be considered dangerous due to rock fall potential.

Climbs the big black streak on the eastern side of the canyon at the top right of the Conundrums crag.
