The Lower Tier contains most of the documented routes on the wall and is the area that receives the most traffic. It’s a very wide section of rock that features mostly splitter crack climbs. It spans for about 1300 feet in width.

Getting There 

From the parking lot for Cuarto Dinamo/Acoconetla, walk up the road for five minutes, past a creek, until the road takes a sharp turn left. Instead of following the road, go right here at the hairpin and find a well-beaten approach trail that soon rises rapidly into the thick scrub. Initially, follow the best-looking option when you reach each intersection. After a few minutes, the trail passes next to a large pine whose trunk splits into an obvious three-pronged trunk system above. Just after this landmark is a tricky trail split at a smaller tree. Follow the obvious trail directly up for a dustier experience, or get on the main trail that initially wasn't obvious to me: step back down at that smaller tree and appear to contour on trail until it also rises steeply to the crags. This trail pops out near the base of some good crack climbing, 10-20 minutes from the car.

Marlon Brando is an excellent splitter just right of Las Hormigas, with lots of hands and a little hands/chimney near the top to gain a ledge out right with rap bolts. It's probably 5.8 or 5.9....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
