This day of rock climbing I will lead you on in Mineral del Chico, Hidalgo, will be truly special and memorable, as we climb the numerous rocks, cliffs, spires, promontories and bluffs in the area, each containing absolutely awesome and epic views back down over the much-forested landscape, scenery and terrain below in El Parque Nacional de Chico Hidalgo, Mexico’s first national park.
Mineral del Chico is a designated climbing area in the El Parque Nacional de Chico Hidalgo, approximately 1.5 hours drive North of Mexico City, and its rugged landscape is quite forested, helped by the above average rainfall the area receives. Many animals call the park home including falcons, eagles, deer, coyote, mountain lions, raccoons and armadillos.
We meet in the quaint and pretty town of Pachuca, where many of the cliffs and rocks we will climb on are visible, and from there we walk along a choice of different trails to reach our climbing spots.
Once there we being climbing in earnest, with the wide array of climbing surfaces catering for climbers of different levels of ability.
It’s hard to overstate how beautiful the views are, as the breath-taking valleys and lakes below stretch out to Pachuca, the lush green forest covering it all, with even several waterfalls to discover within.
After a day of climbing, we retire back Pachuca, happy and weary at having challenged ourselves on the different rock surfaces and formations, and at having witnessed views of the best that Mexico has to offer.

What People are Saying about Mexico Adventure Guides-
Daniel and his partner Alex did a great job guiding us, and helping with all the logistics, especially transportation to and from the climb. Alex was a real pleasure to talk with, learn from, and show us the mountain. Thank you, for a great experience!
Daniel was kind enough to pick me up promptly at the airport when I arrived. we drove straight to amecameca and bought a few supplies, we then drove to Popo park and set up camp. Daniel gave a class on crampons, walking sticks and the ice pick and then it was time to sleep and prepare for the early morning hike start. we set off around 0330 and reached the recluso at about 15,500 feet. it was an amazing experience with wonderful views. Thank you Daniel, Alejandro and Yasmin!
