About El Potrero Chico Guides


Rock climbing with a guide in El Potrero Chico you will find a unique type of climbing not found in the United States, bolted big wall climbing. While there are 2,000 foot bolted routes of high quality there are also a large amount of moderate multi-pitch routes for those who are new to the sport.


The rock in El Potrero Chico is limestone and has many pockets. This style of face climbing comes natural to most climbers.  This along with the bolted nature of the routes makes this a great place for climbers looking to transition to climbing multi-pitch routes. 


We offer guided climbs and classes ranging from begginer classes to self rescue courses, but we specialize in introduction to multi-pitch climbing.  El Potrero Chico Guides can also arrange your accommodations as well as pick you up at the airport making your trip as easy as possible for you.



El Potrero Chico Guides is owned and operated by an AMGA Certified Rock Guide

At El Potrero Chico Guides we believe in using guides with the highest level of training possible for the terrain.  All of our guides are either AMGA Certified Rock Guides or going through the process

The lodging situation in El Potrero Chico could not be better. The climber resorts have both camping, inexpensive lodging and a restaurant all within a five minute hike to the climbing. El Potrero Chico is located in the small town of Hidalgo Mexico. This friendly small town is about an hour outside of the major city Monterrey. All of this combined makes for a great warm winter guided climbing experience here in Mexico.


"Mark is an amazing guide. He was prompt on arrival to our place early am, had a great, fun, upbeat attitude all day, and was completely safe.


He timed our day perfectly and gave great beta for the cruxes."

What People Are Saying About El Potrero Chico Guides


"Mark always puts big emphasize on developing and refining my own climbing skills rather than just pulling me up the mountain. He always finds the right balance between safety and speed and never sacrifices the fun part while keeping the seriousness of the undertking in mind.


He is a very skillful guide and fun to have around."
