Description

These routes start at the highest place that the steps meet the south wall of the canyon. A few of them start from the landing, but most start from a 3rd-class ledge that angles up and leftwards, above the "Lower Virgin Wall".

There should be a cable to protect the high end of the ramp.

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. Respect the local land people by packing out what you pack in.

Approach

Climb the stairs to the top landing, then up and leftwards along the ledge, as needed.

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.
