Summary

From all the climbing areas in Nuevo Leon "La Huasteca" is the closest one to Monterrey. The rock here is limestone and its color is pale gray to white. Most routs here are slab, with some exceptions.

Description

"La Huasteca" is home of lots of classic climbs in Nuevo Leon. There are some multi-pitch routs and a via ferrata. Some routs have very high first bolts, this is because the river has eroded the ground level during rain seasons.

Access issues

The access is controlled by policemen who lookout for irregularities, just slow down and wait for them to ask you to keep driving. During raining season there are chances that the river is too high to cross, making this climbing area inaccessible.

Approach

Drive from Monterrey on Morones Prieto heading east (oriente) towards Saltillo but be careful not to go onto the highway. Before the toll highway to Saltillo follow the sings to "La Huasteca".

Where to stay

Either stay at Huastecamp with Diego, deep in the canyon or at Monterrey. It is not recommended to stay at the entrance of the canyon due to its proximity to the city.

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.
