Los Dinamos: A wooded river canyon (named for no-longer functioning generators) with basalt crags. Maybe the best bet for Mexico City cragging. Lots of routes, good rock, and a uniquely out-of-the-city experience for a spot so closely wedded to the DF mayhem.

The best beta online is on "xpmexico.com". Click (respectively) on 'roca: guias/distrito federal/los dinamos'. the route lists are given on another page accessed by the link (DISTRIBUCIÓN DE LA ZONA) at the bottom of the page.

there is plenty of climbing here, and hopefully the access and route names and pictures given here will get you off on the right start.

Getting There 

I don't have good firsthand directions to the park itself, as I wasn't paying attention. However, there is driving directions beta (unverified by myself) on both rockclimbing.com, xpmexico.com, and other websites, including non-climbing websites. Google 'los dinamos mexico' or similar.

Once you are on the park entrance road, drive a ways (expect to have to pay a few pesos for entrance, and a few to park) and find various climbing areas on the way up the canyon. There are several popular sport areas and a popular trad area.

It's a short drive (10-40 minutes, depending on location and traffic) from most places in Mexico City.

I also see from 'Xpmexico.com' and one tourist-oriented website that it is possible to take a city bus to the park from various stops in the city, but this is unverified as well, and may require a very lengthy walk to the upper crags, depending on where the bus leaves off. xpmexico.com has a lot of public transport (and private transport) directions, albeit in spanish.

Featured Route For Los Dinamos
the start of 'La Marlon Brando'

La Marlon Brando 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  North America : Mexico : ... : Quarto Dinamo
Marlon Brando is an excellent splitter just right of Las Hormigas, with lots of hands and a little hands/chimney near the top to gain a ledge out right with rap bolts. It's probably 5.8 or 5.9....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
