Cerro agujerado arch- cave

A unique, China-esque limestone arch, fully featured with tufas, huecos, pockets and crimps. Most routes range from 50-100 feet (15-30m) long, with a few which may be a little longer. The entire inside of the arch is climbable , with the main walls being the left and the right sides of the arch. The cave currently hosts about a dozen routes, most of which are open for climbing. 

As development is ongoing, please respect the wishes of the developers by respecting red tagged routes. Most routes here are bolted with good hardware, 5 piece powers sleeve bolts and Stainless Steel Glue-Ins. Wedge bolts are not appropriate for this rock type.

Cerro agujerado is located in Juarez county, a neighboaring county with Guadalupe county part of the metropolitan area of Monterrey city.

The drive is around 40 min from the city center and the arch is reached by 1 to 1.5 hrs of easy hiking from the parking area.

Getting There

The approach is 2.5 miles from the parking on an easy well established trail. Follow dirt road through the fence from the parking area, and follow the Y  in the road right when you reach the abandoned building. Follow cairns until you end up at the riverbed, follow the mostly dry riverbed or take cairned paths that follow alongside the riverbed. Follow this until the riverbed is cliffed in on both sides. Wade through the chest deep water for a short time to reach the other side, or find the longer hike around. From the other side find a cairned trail on your left that leads straight to the arch.

1 to 1.5 hour approach.
