Parque Nacional de Basaseachic – Chihuahua, Mexico
Photos by Peter Baumeister, Dierk Sittner, Bert van Lint, Patrick Matos, Mike Brumbaugh, Rob Pizem, Chris Turiano and Luke Laeser compiled from four trips to the area – Being about the size and depth of Colorado’s Black Canyon, the immense and expansive area of Candamenia Canyon/Basaseachic hosts very few climbing routes. El Gigante, the major wall of the area, is up to 3000 feet tall and has seen only a few ascents since it’s first in the early 90s. The Cascade Wall with Cascada de Basaseachic also only has a few routes despite it’s convenient access. Shown in this gallery are photos of the ten pitch Subiendo el Arcoiris (5.13b/c), the monster 28 pitch Logical Progression (5.13) plus a few sport climbs and boulder problems in and around the park.
