Club Mex Wall




This is the upper (up-canyon) section of the south wall of the Estrellas 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. Respect the local land people by packing out what you pack in.


Climb farther up canyon.

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.

70m rope.

A Potrero Chico classic!

Very nice route, the name of the route is written on the rock in blue ink in a yellow box, hard to find.

Follows the brown tufa to anchors below the ledge.

It’s the right most rout on Club Mex wall. The start of the route is a little bit hidden by vegetation. Climb the black rock slab on balancy moves into the vertical orange rock up above.

Starts from the large ledge. Access by climbing "Fear of Flyin'" or "Salty Dog".

Do "Gusada Negra" as the first pitch instead of the regular 5.11a pitch.

Finishes at the same anchor as the first pitch of "Super Nova". Can be used as a "softer" start for the easy cruising of the upper pitches of "Super Nova".

8 5.8

Starts with some technical climbing that ends on a nice ledge (you can use the easier "Gusada Negra" route that ends in the same set of anchors as well)

After that its easy climbing with classic EPC runouts to train you mentally for more EPC climbing.

There are plans to make it climbable all the way up the mountain but for now it ends in P8 where you can have lunch on.

Rappel down the line.

FA: Bob Almond & Magic Ed

FA: Morgan Smith, David Hagood & Tyler Lunsford

Can be rappelled on anchors/sub-anchors up high and "Super Nova" anchors down lower.
