Rocas Alijos

Rocas Alijos, or Escollos Alijos are a group of tiny and barren volcanic islets or above-water rocks in the Pacific Ocean at 24°57′31″N 115°44′59″W. They are part of Comondú municipality of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, situated about 300 km west of the mainland; the total surface area is less than 1,000 square metres. The official area figure of 0.012 square kilometres. The group consists of numerous smaller ones. South Rock, the largest of the group, is 34 meters high, with a diameter of only 14 meters. Middle Rock is 18 meters high and about 10 meters in diameter. North Rock, 200 meters north of South Rock, is 22 meters high, with a diameter of 12 meters; the rocks in between those are either submerged or so low that they are visible among the breaking waves. The rocks seem to be known since the early Spanish history of Mexico; the first description is by pirate John Clipperton. But only in 1791 the first exact description was made by a Spanish sailor. South Rock was climbed for the first time in 1990 by an expedition under the leadership of Robert Schmieder, who edited a monograph about the rocks.

The group is located at the transition zone between two major biologic provinces, at a latitude where the Pacific Current turns westward to form the North Pacific trans-oceanic current. The rocks are nesting sites of many seabirds; the two other Mexican island groups in the Pacific Ocean that are not on the continental shelf are Guadalupe Island and Revillagigedo Islands. The breeding marine avifauna of Alijos Rocks consists of Leach's storm-petrel, red-billed tropicbird, masked booby, sooty tern; the magnificent frigatebird is a regular winter visitor but does not breed. The Laysan albatross is an annual visitor to Alijos Rocks during its winter breeding season, may start to nest there in the near future.
