The Flamingo Wall




This is the north facing wall, above the virgin wall -- the routes start about 275ft above the canyon.

The first route ("The Flamingo Wall") is before the cave, the others are after.

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.


Continue up canyon beyond the stairs, generally staying close to the wall.

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.
