La Huasteca canyon is a huge canyon with many large 1,000+ foot walls. With a five minute drive from Santa Catarina, it is a popular crag with people with people from the city. With way more big faces than it's neighbor El Potrero Chico it is curious why there aren't many sport style routes up the big faces. Most the big faces are known for adventure routes.
