International > N America > Mexico > Northern Mexico > Nuevo Leon > El Potrero Chico

Description

The north-facing wall directly behind the pool complex on the right as you enter El Potrero Chico. The wall is located near the picnic area of the swimming pool complex with BBQ grills.

Getting There

Enter the swimming pool complex at the main entrance. If the pool complex is closed, you can enter by walking a few minutes further along he road until you reach the next wall which is Lower Virgin Wall on the right. The fence surrounding the pool complex has an opening here. Climb up and over the aquaduct and follow the trail as it skirts along the Lower Virgin Wall, then pick a trail that heads back into the pool complex.
