About Caņon San Lorenzo:

It is a fun place to stop if you are going to be passing through there are approximately 80 plus seperate bolted sport routes. a guidebook was recently finished that covers the vast majority of the routes you can get one by stopping by adrenalina pura (a climbing gym here is Saltillo more info in the route database) though I understand a choice few routes have been previously published in a comprehensive Mexican climbing guide. It's status was previously in limbo since the property is privately owned. but the owners recently (in 2004') set up a booth and hired a "live on site care taker" the current rate is 10 pesos (about 90 cents) per visit (staying over night is still considered one visit) there is even a small cabin that is sometimes available for rent in the canyon for about 400 pesos a night it sleeps six (only one bedroom) they may build more. without the guide book simply ask the caretaker (who is not always in the booth some times he is working along side the one road the goes in but he or one of his kids will find you if you show up) or if it is a weekend with good weather you will probably find a few climbers who can point you to the more popular routes. there are no trail markers.
Nearest town or city: Saltillo
Directions: once in saltillo follow the signs that take you out of town towards Zacatecas even before you are out of town look to your left you will see a large canyon with some cliffs visible from the road turn left into the neighborgood called terecitas or niņos heroes and simply work your way toward the canyon that is visible from anywhere in the neighborhood. one gravel road leaves the neighborhood toward the canyon you will enter a red gate that closes off a mining area with signs that anounce it is private property but access is granted to reach the climbing area. (obviously since they have a booth, charge a fee and print promotional material for the area as a outdoor recreational area.) follow the fireroad up the canyon till you see the toll booth. continue past the booth to one of the parking areas or the end of the road. depending where you plan to climb
