Potrero Chico Climbing Guides

In our classes we teach single and multi pitch techniques as well as self rescue. We stress the importance of safety, redundancy and communication.

The class size is limited so everyone gets the attention they deserve but if you have a large group we have an extensive network of guides and can accommodate just about any size group.If you need something more personal you can hire us for a private session as well.

Your experience level doesn’t matter. Full day and half day classes are available. Please give us a call or send an email so we can discuss the many options available and choose the best for you and your group.

Potrero Chico Climbing Guides

Potrero Chico is a national park just outside the small town of Hidalgo in Northern Mexico. It has a variety of routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.13, both single and multi pitch routes as high as 23 pitches! Potrero Chico is a sport climbing paradise!

The main climbing season is between October and March but you can find climbers here all year round (like us). The average high in the winter is 61°F (16°C) but in the summer it can reach as high as 107°F (42°C). You can always find routes in the shade though.

Rock Climbing in Potrero Chico is truly a unique experience. Where else can you find 300meter bolted routes with a 1 minute approach? It’s not just about the climbing but the community as well.

You grab a margarita with friends at the end of the day, drop off your gear and eat at Leo’s Tacos until you’re full. There’s​ something to do almost all nights, from salsa dancing to movie night at El Buho. The New Year’s party at Homeros Ranch (with mechanical bull) is always fun. You just need to get here and experience it for yourself!

What People Are Saying

My 67-year-old uncle and I had about 5 years’ combined climbing experience when we went to EPC for two weeks. It was going to be the biggest, most complicated thing either of us had done. We felt a bit intimidated–not by the climbing, but everything else. So on our first day we met up with Karla and Rudy, and they helped us with “everything else.”

We highly recommend them for guiding and instruction and generally being cool people.

ASCA is a non profit organization of climbers dedicated to replacing old bolts and anchors. ASCA returns  climbing routes to their original danger level by replacing  old bolts, with modern  gear. We do not add bolts to make climbs “safer.” Climbing is inherently extremely dangerous.

Potrero Chico Airport Shuttle

We offer an airport shuttle service, the cost is $50 USD  for up to 4 people. We’ll even stop at La Mexicana so you can pick up some groceries.  If your group is larger than 4 let us know and we can make special arrangements.

The cost is the same as taking a taxi from the Monterrey airport but we know where you’re going (they don’t).
