Mexico part II

In the last post all that was covered was the Rio Alseseca. Part II will cover just a little of the many other rivers mexico offers.

The Rio Jalasingo
This river is a steeper tighter little brother to the Alseseca, joining up with it just above punte Tomata. Its broken up in to two sections. The upper all slides plus three water falls and the lower all water falls and fun boofs. The uppers all fun and the lower shure to deliver the goods if your urge to fall off lips isn´t being met. Recomend doing the lower when the upper is low.

Joel stompin the same drop

Just around the corner is this perfect 20´

Then just around the corner is this STOUT. Named Twisted Pleasure do to the fine line demanded. Has a class 2 s-turn lead in, but the lip folds trying to spin you. Not a huge problem other then the landing is about 11´wide with rocks and bolders at the bottom.....Don´t get pitted!

Joel showing the proper technique for a bow draw above a 7o footer, no big deal.

Seth oppting for the BOOOOOOOF of his life.

Nailing the middle

Just down steam of Twisted pleasure is the 35-40´Dirty Sanchaz

I don´t have photos, but after the last waterfall is a ton of clean 5-10´boofs till you come to a dark canyon looking spot.

This spot is Dungen Drop. The name reflects the caved out walls and lack of light. Heres will giving er

The rest of the run is chill. Recomend looking for a 90´waterfall portage, no ropes needed. Be carful not to miss it. A group had once missed it and ran the drop. No one died but shattered kayaks, split helmets, and a busted coller bone were a small price to pay for the gift of continued life.

The Rio Oro
The take out of the Rio Oro

This river is a true gem. Its home to the clearest looking bubble perfect water I found in Mexico. you also take out at the beach of the Gulf cost. RAD!

Robert on the first 30´

Myself, same drop

The next 35 footer

from here out its chill till the cost. One of the most fun rivers I had done.

The San Pedro drop
This is a clean 45´an hour away from the Alseseca. You find it just under a bridge. almost too good to be true. Fun one for sessions

Will, falling off yet another drop, San Pedro.

Thats all for now. Just finishing here in Chiapas and headed to the coast. Look forward to some more in Mex part III
