The State of Chiapas presents excellent rock formations, in the midst of its splendid forests, which are very well attended by extreme sports devotees. We have the following amongst the best routes:
- High Plateau of Copoya: it is characteristic for its high quality limestone. Here you will find more than 50 routes for sport and traditional scaling, with difficulty classes varying between 5.6 and 5.12 degrees (United States) equivalent to a 4 c-7 in France. The use of lifters and stoppers is needed in addition to the parabolts in some of the sectors.
The cliffs of the High Plateau of Copoya are in the shade the entire day, thus facilitating the performance of climbers. It is located half an hour away by foot from Tuxtla Gutierrez.
- The Gym: it has high quality stone vertical walls. It is at the Cañón de Sumidero National Park and its cliffs are 600 metres high with little vegetation, which allow realising long climbs. There are 10 routes for sport scaling in this zone, though they are proper for professionals only.
