Main Wall




This is why you come to the Boca! A tall wall with yellowish rock, slightly overhanging with great lines. Many routes have (hard) extensions but you also find warm-ups left (on grey rock) and right.


Hike in to the Boca and take a left once you see the wash and the wall, impossible to miss.

Ethic inherited from El Salto; C.d.G.

Climbing around Cienega de Gonzalez developed over many years and was and is being carried out by many different developers. Many of them local Mexicans but also loads of foreigners that pass through, bolt and "disappear". The information about climbs in this area is thus incomplete in the sense of route names, developers, first ascensionists and sometimes even grades. Please contribute by entering your grade contributions (Edit Route, enter grade, safe) and by adding new routes and information whenever you encounter it. The climbing community will be thankful!
