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. The third pitch goes at 10c with thin face moves to easier crack. If you jam, expect blood since this is sharp limestone! The fourth pitch eases up at 9 and the final hard pitch follows at 10c. This fifth pitch is definitely the crux as there is a major pump factor from the previous four pitches. The business starts off the belay with thin face moves ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

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.
