You are tired of the cold Canadian winters and you want to escape to the South? Why not do a combination and climb long rock routes, while taking advantage of the Mexican warmth with us! Our destination is the Mecca in winter for the majority of the climbers: El Potrero Chico. Our goal is to make you live a wonderful experience doing multi-pitch climbing in a superb environment. On this trip with us, you can get your sun and climb all at once!

An intermediate level of climbing experience is required in order to have a good experience and not a misadventure. On the routes, we will cross old climbing equipment, cactus, loose rocks which make this a fabulous experience.

The first two days are reserved for coaching/formation. For those with more experience, we will realize workshop on climbing movements and falls. For those who does not lead climb yet, it will be the time! Finally, we will do transition from inside to outside for those who only lead climb inside.

Lodging

We have the chance to stay in a private house just for us. It contains rooms with large size bed, kitchenette, and toilets. If the house is not available, we will have separate private rooms. We will also have access to the pool, internet and even a service of massage for those who want (extra)!

Transport

From and back to Monterey will be through private transport. In Potrero Chico, we will walk to our climbing spot since everything is super close.

You are responsible to your transport to Monterrey, Mexico (make sure it is Monterrey in MEXICO). Since we have a lot of equipment to carry, we will divide it with the participants.

Food

Your guide will do the groceries for all the breakfast that will include eggs, cheese, salsa and fruits.

For dinner, it is possible to go to restaurants (extra) or cook at the house according to what we prefer and the mood. You need to take care of your snacks and lunch for the day. Usually, we split the cooking tasks all together.

Climbing equipment

We take care of all the group equipment: ropes, rock protections, first aid kit, communication, etc.

You only need to have your own personal gear. A list will be provided.
