The Canyons of El Potrero Chico house some of the best limestone climbing in North America. The surface of the rock is eroded and sculpted by rainwater to reveal a climbers paradise of well featured and beginner friendly rock. The climbing is primarily face climbing and is super intuitive. The grades are also super friendly, making for a very easy transition from climbing in the gym to climbing outside for the first time. 

All guides are AMGA Certified Rock Guides
