Description

The shallow cave right of "The Dihedrals", high up on the wall behind "The Spires" with great steep climbing on tufas. The bottom of the "bowl" is quite dusty. Shade arrives in the afternoon from the left, the rightmost routes are in the sun till mid afternoon in winter.

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.

Approach

Take the trail up towards the spires, and go up and over the saddle above the spires, then continue upwards.

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.
