Description

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.

When he is not in the field (where he spends over 100 days a year) you can find him creating electronic music and making people dance. Mick has a habit of making those around him smile, and you might just wonder when he sleeps!
