La Meca




The right end of the cliff band with mostly steep routes. Well shaded by trees but might get some late afternoon sun.


Great rock quality and steep climbs in mostly harder grades. Some (many) of the routes stay wet after the rain and thus it is not a great area for the rainy season but go and have a look, it is really worth it.

Access issues

Hay una cuota de $20MXN ~ $1USD para entrar, se paga en la casa que tiene barda de carrizo, de igual manera se puede dejar el auto estacionado ahí, preguntar al dueño


Drive from Oaxaca in direction Tule. Pass the administrative city (red and white modern buildings; do not enter the federal highway) and take a right just after it on Calle Camino del Tarrastro (which is a dirt road). Pass under the federal highway and continue uphill. Take a right to a bigger building and park there. Hike up on the well marked trail, heading right if in doubt to reach the left side of the climbsble section of the cliff.

You actually see the cliff once you passed the administrative city.
