This route is consistent for the grade in Mexico The first two pitches go at 10a with the first pitch ending at the top of a distinct pillar.

Some of the best single pitch routes are here. It is generally where the sun falls first, so in cold weather this is your best bet. In the summer heat, however, you might not last so long.
After hiking down the road into the Potrero and past the tin pavillion, you'll pass a cattle gate and enter the center of the ring of mountains. To your left across the dry creek is a buttress going uphill. The lower part of the wall is Mota Wall.

For single pitch routes in the 5.10-.11 range - this is it. Be careful here as there are several multipitch routes that climb over the lower wall. Wear your helmets as I have seen more than few rocks come down by unseen climbers above here. Be especially aware when people are on Snot Girlz.
