That looks very nice but what a hassle to go climbing. You want miles, yes miles, of unclimbed thousand-foot walls with easy access and no red tape? Look no farther than Northern Mexico.

big hassle.... I know....just the thought of a place with no history and tons of new routes caught my attention.

in all honesty...I would choose EPC over this place.

Of course, turing post on RC.com into a real climbing trip is almost impossible. Loads of people want to climb until it's time to actually do it.
Very true. Lots of daydreaming without actually being able to do anything (not that there is anything wrong with that).

Nothing wrong with daydreaming, unless you let it effect your actual climbing.
I find it helps my climbing to have wild aspirations to work towards.I certainly daydreamed a LOT about the Bugaboos, and I managed to find myself there - and hot damn was it good. I figure the more something occupies your mind the more you will work towards it both consciously and subconsciously. Dream of big walls and you will naturally start paying more attention to rope systems etc. (even while watching a climbing film or something).

True true true. I know every time I read about a new location or one I've never heard of before, I dream of going there. Nice to know I get to a lot of places, but I'll never get to all of them, that's for sure. Keep dreaming, and work towards making that dream a reality.

Doesn't seem like much of a hassle. Getting around in China is easier than people think. I bet a climber can easily hire a couple of sherpas, maybe horses to help ferry loads. I bet a local village or tribe has comfortable accommodations too.

To be honest, I feel safer in China than Mexico. I guess it's because I have more personal experience with the later. I also think the weather in China is better, less hot and humid.

Much closer for me, I'm in Asia already. Besides, China is safer than Mexico in my opinion.

My chinese is way better than my spanish too, and it's cheaper to travel in China. I checked out this area in 1998, but I was by myself. I did some pebble wrestling, but nothing big. Maybe when my kids graduate from highschool I'll get back out there. You guys should put up a bunch of routes for me.

If you make it back to China, I have a whole list of routes I've put up for you to check out. If I get to this place, the list will definitely b longer.

When do they graduate?
