EL POTRERO CHICO CLIMBING RETREAT
Join us for a week long dive into the climbing and cuisine of Mexico! El potrero chico is well known for its high limestone walls and warm winter temperatures. The goal is to climb a bunch of stellar routes with like minded climbers. In the evenings we will gather to share a meal at one of the many local restaurants.
November 27th - December 3rd 2022 (Full)

Some indoor climbing experience is necessary. Experience climbing outside is not required.
We will have lodging booked for the night before the trip starts. Please plan to arrive at the house in the afternoon/evening.
DAYS 1 AND 2
For our first climbing days, we will all head out as a group and do some cragging. Our goal for the first day will be to get warmed up to the climbing in Potrero and teach or review some baseline skills. On the second day we will practice anchor building, cleaning, rappelling and for folks who are interested we can talk about leading and introduce multi pitch systems.
For the main portion of the course, we will cater to the groups interest, those interested in multi-pitch climbing will continue to climb routes and those looking to stay in the single pitch world will continue to crag. For rest days, there are some local hikes and an awesome market on the streets of hidalgo.
We will have a group debrief in the morning before everyone heads out and makes their way to the airport to head home.
