Climbing in El Potero Chico Mexico

This international sport climbing destination might be the best place in North America to enjoy some casual multi-pitch sport climbing. With 1000's of feet of limestone ridges and sweeping faces the desert atmosphere makes for some amazing climbing from late fall through spring. While summers can be hot there is generally shade to be found with the orientation of the canyon to keep climbing temperatures reasonable. It is a great location for anyone who can climb at least 5.8 and is wanting to learn to sport lead. While there isn't much in the way of trad climbing for anyone who wants to learn the basics of multi-pitch climbing this is a great location.


About an hour south of the town of Monterrey in Mexico there are excellent options for lodging and food that also make this a relatively inexpensive climbing destination for those already in the western hemisphere. While we offer privately guided climbs here this is also one of our regularly scheduled group climbing trips we offer through the winter.
