About El Chiflon:

This is a series of waterfalls I don't know how many routes are present there are bolts starting at the top and follow the waterfalls down to the bottom some of them are rusty and a bit dicey but it is a beautiful place to climb (or even swim) but I personally would back up all the pro since the water has rusted a lot of it and a few of the unions only have one of the obviously original two left. I think your safest bet is start at the top rap down and then climb back up. the bolts are not placed for a lead climb.
Nearest town or city: saltillo
Directions: head out of saltillo toward torreon follow the "libre" (non toll road) as soon as you make the turn to your right to stay on the free road look to your right the road runs parallel to a mountian you will travel about a mile or so and notice the mountian has a dip (or valley) and then continues coming out of that dip is a tree line that runs all the way to the road you are on. right before that tree line is a small two track (sometimes with a closed gate) enter here follow the two track back on weekends you maybe stopped and asked for 10 pesos entry fee follow the road till it stops get out and follow the canyon back (the trail starts on the right side of the small stream. in about 10-15 minutes you will find yourself at the base of the waterfall and climbs.
