Transfer from Monterrey airport to the accommodation in El Potrero Chico. First delicious home cooked Mexican dinner!
Early breakfast and departure to practice on sharp grey limestone cliffs. I will teach you lead climbing theory. We will practice how to build sport anchors, how to clean anchors. We’ll also learn rappelling and lead climbing.
The scenery in the area is beautiful!
We will learn about the theory of multi-pitch climbing during breakfast on day 4. Then we walk the crags. The group gets divided: half of the participants go sport climbing together and the other half go multi-pitch climbing.
If you don’t want to try multi-pitch you can do sport climbing on both days.
Relaxing at the end of each day. There’s time to swim, take a hike, hang out or just take a nap!
Today we learn and refine steep sport climbing technique while watching others. It’s the opportunity to try something more challenging than what you would normally do.
We will enjoy exploring the area.
In the evening, going away celebration with a delicious feast!
