The biggest climbing zone in Chiapas, Mexico (with more than 60 bolted sport routes) and last standing green area of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas around the plateau of Copoya is currently in danger of being turned into a housing estate, even though it is in a high risk zone of landslides, due to governmental corruption and private interests, even though it is supposed to be a conserved area. We have managed to grab the attention of the local government due to more than 7,000 signatures on our Change.org petition, and they are starting to listen. Please help continue putting international pressure on the local government to conserve the area and put collective interests in front of private ones, signing our petition:
