About Pico Perico:

Perico (Parrot peak), is the second highest peak of Cerro de Las Mitras and the one that stands out when viewing the mountain from downtown Monterrey. Perico as most of the high peaks on Las Mitras, has steep slopes to the south and towering cliffs to the north and is one of the most climbed on this mountain. Since it is located in the center of the mountain flanked by lower peaks, the views from it`s summit are spectacular; to the east one can see three peaks, Piloto, Lobos and Apache, then the city of Monterrey with Cerro de la Silla in the background; to the west are three more peaks, Pirámide and Cuauhtémoc (the highest), with Pińón between them but not visible. A great deal of the Sierra Madre Oriental can be seen to the south.
