Description

The Mexican Mountain Road stretches for 14 miles from the San Rafael River bridge in the Buckhorn wash to a gate at the base of Mexican Mountain. The Wingate walls above the road host classic crack climbs, including the very popular Dylan Wall.

After passing the very beautiful Red Canyon, the character changes. The few climbers thin out, and you enter an area of very large towers and mountain like landforms. These impressive landforms have formidable approaches, and solitude is guaranteed.

Getting There

Approach the San Rafael bridge either though the Buckhorn Wash from the north or via the Cottonwood Wash road from the south. Turn onto the signed Mexican Mountain road on th north side of the bridge at the BLM campground. The road is usually passable for 2WD cars if you are careful, and there is plentiful camping.
