On Facebook look up San Lorenzo Basaseachi to book a stay. We also used their guide to approach the route via easiest way in from the Rancho. Dec 11, 2016
I remember enormous walls like Gigante in Barrancas del Cobre, the approach and getting out with big wall gear would be a GIGANTE undertaking, and the sun bakes there. Did you guys pack gear in on donkeys? Kudos to you guys for hitting that wall. Nov 14, 2009
