Climb the fantastic walls of this majestic monolith. And explore its fantastic cliffs, some of them rising above the 450 meters. This magnificent place is visible from more than 50 kilometers around, standing out not only for its size, but for its beauty.

This rock climbing paradise lies near the city of Queretaro, in the town of Bernal. Hence reaching it is very easy. Also, the approach is fun too, as there is a trail that can take us about the halfway point on its eastern side. But we can start climbing from different areas.

The quality of rock is impressive, firm and strong. Also, we can find splending boulders and ledges. And, its more than 25 routes ranking III-IV, with options for different type of climbers. Some of them are even bolted, and some aren’t full routes, but suitable for top-rope. One of its easiest ones is Bernalina, a 5.9 route which has 7 amazing pitches. Then, there are other ones like El Rosal, also 5.9 or Cadena Nebular 5.11b which will definitely put your skills to test.

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!
