Lagrimas y Sonrisas


It's a small area with a few climbs. Cracks, face. Great area to avoid having to cross the river when there´s water flowing down from the Presa Rompe-picos (not very often).

Es una área pequeña con unas cuantas rutas. Grietas, placa (con goteritas). Excelente para no mojarte cuando el río tiene agua y no puedes llegar a la extrema o navajas sin tener que cruzar el río.

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.


Your drive up to "Pared de los Gatos" right before crossing to the cattle gate (ditch with five iron pipes on the ground). You'll see a tree and you'll notice you can park your car. Usually there's people there taking rappeling courses. From there you walk back from the way you came on the road an look for a path up to the wall. When you get to the wall just look for the bolts. (There may be unfinished routes so be prepared to abandon if you find a route without anchors).

Llegas hasta la pared de los gatos justo antes de cruzar el guarda-ganado (la zanja con tubos) vas a ver un árbol y lugar para estacionarte. Normalmente hay gente tomando cursos de rappel ahí. Ya estacionado caminas un poco de regreso por donde llegaste y buscas un camino para subir a la pared, ya en la pared solo tienes que buscar las placas (hay que estar listo para abandonar rutas sin reunión)

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.
