This short wall is right at ground level and has an unmistakable "wave" breaking right at the top. Most of the climbs are relatively easy until reaching the wave.

The wall faces south but is protected from the sun until late in the day by huge wall surrounding it.

Getting There 

Near the end of the canyon, across from the tin-roofed picnic pavilion, on the left (east) side of the road.

Climbing Season

For the El Potrero Chico area.

Pansy Cap 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  North America : Mexico : ... : La Ola (The Wave)
A new, easy route on the far right side of the Wave. Named after the ultra-famous coffee drink at El Búho Cafe and onsight free-solo ground-up bolted in the nude, we think it makes a great addition to the crag. A top-rope can be set up by walking up around the wave and down to the anchors but getting to the anchors is a little bit exposed. The route starts steep and turns slabby and the crux is probably the steep moves around the 2nd bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
