Very popular area, home to many classics, such as El Nopal and Muralla de los Sentidos.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, head towards the end of the cliff, where it gets narrower. On the right side look for an obvious tree with a nice ledge to rappel. This is the top out for El Nopal (5.10a). One 30m rappel gets you to the ground. If you prefer to walk down, keep going straight and down climb a sketchy section of about 3-5 meters and then turn right and follow the cliff until you reach El Nopal, identifiable from below because of the cactus under a roof.

This is the obvious right facing dihedral to the left of Kamikaze, Muralla de los Sentidos, Nopal and Al Filo de tus Sentimientos. Easy start to tricky finger crux. Have a good rest and then go up vertical hand crack. Seemed a bit harder than 5.10a....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
