Highlights

 
     

    Join me in El Potrero Chico, near Monterrey, for a fantastic week enjoying rock climbing in Mexico. This week is the perfect combination of exciting climbing experiences and relax time.

    El Potrero Chico is a beautiful nature reserve. But it’s not only nice too look at. It also offers plenty of possibilities! The many activities include hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking and swimming. The weather is warm and dry, rendering the situation even more comfortable. Plus, we will of course enjoy the Mexican food and culture! Full of flavor and color. Indeed, a different way to discover Mexico!

    You need to have indoor rock climbing experience but not necessarily outdoor experience. Depending on the exact program, the minimum age will be 12, 16 or 18. Check with me for more detailed info.

    During this expedition you will learn or improve your skills in different techniques like:
    – Belaying
    – Climbing movement
    – Top-rope climbing
    – Multi-pitch skills
    – Mock-leading

    Did you find this climbing trip in Mexico tempting? Then please get in touch with me for more information! It will be my pleasure to guide you in El Potrero Chico. 

    I offer many other climbing trips. If you want to can for example have a look at this Climbing weekend at Smith Rock State Park, USA.

    What People are Saying about -Mick Pearson

     

    Kaf Adventures is fantastic. I could not have asked for a better experience with my Intermediate Mountaineering class I took with Kaf. The instructors were knowledgeable, excellent teachers, supportive, and fun. I felt like I was in excellent hands. And I actually got the chance to use my new skills on our climb of Mount Baker, as I took a short fall and self-arrested! I had a great time climbing Mount Baker and improving my mountaineering skills with Kaf. Highly recommended.

    Just took an intermediate rock climbing course.  What a fantastic class.  Our instructor was Joel and we started off covering all the different types of gear, static vs dynamic force, etc. before going into how to correctly and safely use it.  There were only 3 of us and with an 8 hour day we got lots of practice in. Joel was super patient and adapted the class to our skill level and the questions we had.    I walked away feeling like I could do this on my own safely.  Cannot recommend Kaf enough, if you\'re thinking of transitioning to outdoor climbing, call them up

    I just got back from a 3-day Mountaineering Intermediate course on Mt. Baker, and I couldn\'t be happier that Kaf Adventures lead the way. Weather was ideal the first 2 days but on summit day the decision was made to stay put as conditions were questionable and miserable. Our 3 guides (Joel, Archer and Todd) were absolutely fantastic - extremely knowledgeable and high-energy and I loved how they infused the trip with their own personalities and experiences. They were constantly assessing and checking in with us to make sure we were all comfortable physically, mentally, spiritually. :) It was a feeling of complete comfort, which was most welcome in an environment I\'m naturally a little terrified of. Can\'t wait for my Rainier climb with Kaf, and to take more courses. I definitely recommend them, and can\'t say enough good things!
