Route Climbed: River Date Climbed: May 2001  Sucess!

It´s a abrupt mountain but is diferent, because the real experience is when you go down. It´s to 1 hour of Monterrey City in State of Nuevo Leon, it´s like a Canyon, the water to be always, with transparent colors,much cascades,caves for down is necesary to jump or rappeling, but the dificult is the emotión and scare. The experience is for 1 day. if it is the first time, you need always guide, also is necesary casce and protection for suimming and instruments for rappel

Route Climbed: Las Adjuntas Date Climbed: August 2004  Sucess!

Not a climb in the strict sense of the word, though you have to climb, uphill trekking, to reach the waterfall's top from where you rappel into the canyon. The point of no return. Once you hit the river, and the cold water, you have to swim, rock hop, walk, duck-under, cave swim, pool dive for eight solid hours. Get you neoprene suit. And nylon shorts if you value your butt, there si a lot of sliding on you rear end, enough to shread cotton shorts. This is canyoneering at it's best!
