Summary

The rock at "La Presa" is sharp limestone, and by sharp I mean really sharp! But that doesn't make this place any harm since there are really good climbs. Most of the climbs are next to the river.

Description

This place is the heart of La Laguna. El "Cañon de Fernandez" is the canyon that is home of the river "Rio Nazas" where the water from "La Presa" flows year round. The climbs are located near to the river which makes this a unique place to climb in the desert, pretty much like an oasis.

Access issues

Sometimes the locals ask for money at la "Caseta de cobro", tell them you are here just to climb at the "reliz" and they should let you pass for free.

Approach

Most walls at la presa can be approached by walking 1 to 5 minutes from your car.

Where to stay

Stay at "Faro los arturos" or any of the camping spots found next to the river, some of them have grills.

Ethic

Leave no trace! Be careful with the native petroglyphs.
