La Huasteca is the first climbing area in Monterrey, Mexico, only 15 minutes from the city. With nearly 200 bolted routes with grades from 5.8 to 5.13C, it is the favorite place for weekend climbers. It is also known for the slippery type of limestone from which it is comprised, and which makes climbing seem more difficult than at other areas, such as Potrero Chico. There are no entrance fees for most of the climbing areas.
La Huasteca is a desert, very similar to Potrero Chico.
