This is the seperate "dunce cap" shaped spire in front of the Potrero proper, on the right side of the road.

Not many routes, not very good rock, and a longish approach leave this not being climbed very often.

The routes here are all on some of the worst quality rock in Potrero Chico. Highly recommended not to be climbed.

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.

This climb starts where the trail meets the rock. Tends to be runout.

Twenty feet right of "Bonum de Carnival". Also tends to be runout.

Climbs the east (closest to the road) ridge of El Bobo. Nasty bushwhack to the base making the climb hard to find. 4 new bolts have been added on the start, but rest is gear.
