The Sumidero Canyon in Chiapas, Mexico, is a truly wild and relatively unexplored frontier, and I will guide you on this thrilling and fun day of rock climbing around the canyon, as we scale the absolutely massive and humongous rock walls, which reach up to 1000m, and take in the magnificent views over the water and valleys below.

The Sumidero Canyon is located close to the city of Chiapa de Corzo in Southern Mexico, and is nestled within the protected Sumidero National Park. The canyon itself was damned in the 1970’s, finally allowing people access to its interior, and despite many tourists, mainly Mexican, visiting the canyon each year, rock climbing is still quite a novelty for the area, possibly due to the sheer size and scale of the place.

We meet in the morning in the city of Chiapa de Corzo, and from there it is a short journey to the canyon.

Once at the canyon we have our pick of a wide range of rock walls to climb, each with different characteristics. There is variation in each location, with some walls exposed to different weather and with different vegetation, some accessible straight from the water and some require much walking on rugged terrain to be reached.

Much of the climbing is challenging due to the relative paucity of previous rock climbing in the area.

The views from our climbs are astonishing, as the walls tower over the landscape, scenery and terrain, offering sweeping panoramic views all around the raw natural beauty, including rapids, waterfalls, beaches and springs.

We finish the day happy in the knowledge that we have rock climbed in one of the more mysterious and wild frontiers of North America, and challenged ourselves to improve our climbing.

Rock climbing in the Sumidero Canyon is truly a one-off experience – book now to see what all the fuss is about!

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!
