Description

This is the upper (up-canyon) section of the south wall of the Estrellas canyon.

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

Climb farther up canyon.

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.

Do "Gusada Negra" as the first pitch instead of the regular 5.11a pitch.

Finishes at the same anchor as the first pitch of "Super Nova". Can be used as a "softer" start for the easy cruising of the upper pitches of "Super Nova".
