Description

This wall is the right side of the Los Lobos canyon.

Routes are described Right to Left, that is from lowest (closest to the road) to farthest up 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

Routes are accessed by scrambling up the trail/scree along the wall. Try to stay close to the wall, this is generally easier than scrabbling up the scree in the center of the canyon.

Ethic inherited from Nuevo León

Please don´t litter, some crags like LaHuasteca are a little farbolted, but thats how they were setted, please avoid adding bolts. Rebolting efforts are much apreciated, just sens a heads up to the local climbing comunity for safety reasons.

35m of fun and easy jug-hauling up the long, less-than-vertical wall.

(There may be more climbing above the anchors that are at 35m that is harder than 5.7 -- but to the obvious anchors is about 5.7 climbing. Several other listings have grades 5.9-5.10a and lengths of 45m/150ft.)

The main route goes straight up at the first anchor for the second pitch or you can take the easier variation on the 2nd pitch of Palm Snake which has you going left at the first anchor and is called Palms Away and goes at 5.10a.

4 5.10a

Starts near the upper end of the Los Lobos wall, just a bit right (downhill) of the Estrellita rappel route. Has a name plate, and a clear left-facing corner on pitch 2.

  1. 5.8 30m. Climb up a broken pillar leaning against the wall to a good ledge.

  2. 5.9 25m. Climb up over a small roof then follow a left-facing corner with some tough layback moves.

  3. 5.9 40m. Climb consistently good movement past an intermediate rappel anchor to a belay in an alcove.

  4. 5.10a 15m. Step down and right from the alcove onto the steep face, then up to the top of the ridge.

Descent: with a 70m rope, rappel from the top anchors to the intermediate anchors on P3 (35m rappel), then to the ledge at the top of P1. (With a 60m rope (ugh), it might take 5 rappels.)

The 1st pitch is easy climbing through 7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. 2nd pitch starts out easy but eventually comes to a clean face with a great layback feature that makes you utilize some very small feet. Tech your way through this pitch and enjoy it. This is the reason for getting on this route. Very tall pitch with 12 bolts and a 4 bolt anchor. The third pitch is another easy one that gets a little rocky up towards the top. Be careful not to kick any down on your partner, 10 bolts 2 bolt anchor.
