Potrero Chico Climbing Guides
Covid19 Update: The Potrero Chico Park is open and all of our guides are fully vaccinated.
We are taking reservations for Sept. 1st 2021 and beyond.
In our classes we teach the importance of safety, redundancy and communication.
Your experience level doesn’t matter. We can guide you to the summit of classic multi pitch routes like Space Boyz and Estrellitas or with our 2 day Multi Pitch “Crash” Course we can give you and your partner the skills needed to have a safe trip while climbing in Potrero Chico.

Potrero Chico Climbing
The name Potrero Chico means “little corral”. In the past it was used as a natural corral for horses and other livestock by the local people of Hidalgo, but now it’s a world class sport climbing destination that offers multi pitch routes in the 5.7 to 5.14 range as high as 27 pitches. With very short easy approaches.
The main climbing season is between October and March but you can find climbers here all year (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).
At the end of the day drop off your gear, grab a margarita with friends and eat at Leo’s Tacos until you’re full. There’s something to do almost every night, from salsa dancing to movie night at El Buho. Friday night dinners at Rancho Sendero. You just need to get here and experience it for yourself!
