Potrero Chico Climbing Guides


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!

Through my work, I’ve climbed in over 20 countries across 4 continents. In that time I’ve met many guides, and I have to say that the experience I had with Rudy was one of the best I’ve ever had. He was super professional, trustworthy, and instantly put me at ease. We had a great few days climbing enjoying some of the classic multi-pitches that EPC has to offer.

Potrero Chico Climbing Guiides“It was going to be the biggest, most complicated thing either of us had done. We felt a bit intimidated. So on our first day we met up with Karla and Rudy and they helped us pick just the gear we needed to climb efficiently at EPC; they made us confident in our transitions; they taught us time- and hassle-saving rope management and rappelling techniques. We highly recommend them for guiding and instruction and generally being cool people.”
-Ryan Mc

“The day of multi-pitch was extremely informative and a lot of fun to learn. Half a day low to the ground to go over everything and then up on the wall in the afternoon for a good three pitch climb. After learning from Rudy, we felt confident enough to go out the next couple of days and safely tackle some multi-pitch routes on our own.”
