Named after the numerous pictographs of deer etched on its East Side, the looming fin of El Reliz de los Venados is what first attracted climbers to La Presa. Here solid, vertical limestone, along with roadside access, provides excellent climbing. Routes are located on both the East and West Side of the precipice, with the West Side receiving shade in the morning all year long, as well as holding the majority of La Presa’s most classic lines.


To get to the main fin of El Reliz, drive past the town of Nuevo Graceros 1.5 kilometers towards the reservoir to where the obvious fin on the left meets the road. Parking is available in a pull-off on the left side of the road just past the fin. In addition to El Reliz proper, several bolted lines are also located on two subsequent fins located behind its West Face in the areas of La Sinagoga and El Cañón del Castor.
