Alta Cabeza (or High Head) is a location featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Alta Cabeza is a series of buttes west of El Matadero in the Diez Coronas region of the Nuevo Paraiso territory.

A portion of the Stranger side-mission "Aztec Gold" takes place at this location.

This area strongly resembles Monument Valley, on the Utah/Arizona border.


  • The term 'High Head' probably does not reference being intoxicated, but instead to hold one's head high, to be proud.
