Description

This cliff is one of the easiest to find -- it is the big vegetated slab behind the tin pavilion.

Several of EPC's classic multi-pitch go up this wall.

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

Step over the aqueduct and walk past the (mostly) abandoned picnic area.

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.

Grade Route

Starts left of "Stairway to Nowhere", up to its summit, further up the ridge into a large bowl, then up to the summit of "Time Wave Zero".

Descent: rappel TWZ.

FFA: Francisco Medina

Mixed gear and bolts, seldom climbed and hard to find.

The one bolted route on this vegetated wall between the main Jungle wall climbing area and Outrage wall.

FA: Ann Ramsey & Magic Ed

Mostly 4th class, with a few steeper bits.

1 5.8
2 5.9
3 5.8

Walk up the trail made of concrete tires leftwards from the tin pavilion until you get to the left-most set of bolts, just before the gulley that is "Tamirindo". The first pitch trends leftwards, avoiding the obvious roof.

FA: Magic Ed, Tami & Ismael Garza

Start as per "Las Chimuelas", but after 3rd bolt follow bolt-line straight up to the left side of the roof.

Shares start with "Las Chimuelas" and "Warifikis", but goes over the roof at an easier part than Warifikis.

Climb up and over the roof. Then up slab above.

Ed rates this 5.10a, Dane rates it 5.8. I split the difference.

FA: Dane Bass

The next three routes ("Jungle Fever", "Voodoo Trance", and "Hot Rock Global Challenge") are on a wall above the ledge/garden on the left side of the face. Climb the first three pitches of "Jungle Moutaineering", then walk leftwards up the 3rd class trail along the base of the face to find them.

5 5.10c

This route is approached by climbing the first 3 pitches of "Jungle Mountaineering" then following the 3rd class trail leftwards up through the garden to the wall. Left most route. This is a new route. It is awesome and mostly clean, except for the last pitch which has a crack full of spikey plants, maybe bring scisors or gardening gloves to clean this nice pitch.

This route is approached by climbing the first 3 pitches of "Jungle Mountaineering" then following the 3rd class trail leftwards up through the garden to the wall.

This route is approached by climbing the first 3 pitches of "Jungle Mountaineering" then following the 3rd class trail leftwards up through the garden to the wall.

Pitch 4 has a 5.11b variation -- go straight up through the overhanging dihedral for the 11b, or up a ramp before re-joining the dihedral.

This route is approached by climbing the first 3 pitches of "Jungle Mountaineering" then following the 3rd class trail leftwards up through the garden to the wall.

This is the first line of bolts that will be found on the wall.

Climb the obvious clean water streak right of the Jungle Boy roof, on the generally left side of the wall.

(Dane's book describes this as run-out, and pitch 3 is listed as 5.9R in Ed's book -- but it has been re-bolted and is no more run-out than normal for EPC.)

FA: Jeff Jackson & Alex Catlin

Warning Rock: Loose rock on P3 or P4

The summit register is at the end of pitch 13, most people skip the last two pitches, and, especially, the last pitch.

FA: Magic Ed, Tami & Ismael Garza

Climb easy slab with solid holds just to the right of Yankee Clipper, now with a plaque at the start.

Newly(2016) cleaned (re-cleaned? there's one really old bolt on it) route just to the right of "Yankee Clipper".

FA: Antonio Gonzalez, 2016

A new (2017) climb just right of La Chiky Baby; similar climmbing but a lot more run-out. Name plate on the bottom. .

FA: Antonio Gonzales, 22 Oct 2017

This Potrero classic was bolted entirely on the weekends. Starts just north of the pavilion. Loose rock. Helmet recommended. Please be careful of the partying Mexicans below. This route has been climbed in 2 1/2 hours, car to car. Take 20 draws if you combine pitches, works well for 1&2, 3&4 and on top.
