Summary

Grades from 5.8 - 5.11D. A couple of clasic multi-pitch routes. You'll find lots of fun here.

Description

This is a great area with lots of routes and grades to choose from. Beware of lose rock after rainy days (people not wearing helmets satay a safe distance from the rock faces). The face is oriented to the west so in the summer you can climb during the morning up until noon. During winter you can climb in the warm sun all afternoon.

Access issues inherited from La Huasteca

The access is controlled by policemen who lookout for irregularities, just slow down and wait for them to ask you to keep driving. During raining season there are chances that the river is too high to cross, making this climbing area inaccessible.

Approach

Drive from the La Huasteca Park entrance and get to La Zona Extrema.
