      Product description

      El Potrero Chico is the world's largest big wall sport climbing destination and is home to over 600+ sport routes. Located on the outskirts of Hidalgo Nuevo Leon, Mexico, a quaint little town that has been welcoming to the climbing community since the late 80's and early 90's. The sharp contrast between the low of the valley where the town sits and the very tall towering walls of EPC creates a very beautiful scenic view. These limestone walls have been developed with some amazingly large routes that are bolted all the way to the top. A great place for the beginner sport climber to get into the awesome world of multi-pitch climbing. Although many of the big multi-pitch climbs are considered moderates ranging from 5.10a to 5.10d, there are several that reach into the 5.11 and 5.12 range and even a couple in the 5.13 range. So there is plenty of amazing big walls for everyone. That being said, the single-pitch climbing in El Potrero Chico is top notch. There are amazing routes of all grades from 5.7 to 5.13. So when you need a rest from scaling the massive walls, enjoy some of the cragging that is available in some of the other single pitch crags. Outrage wall, The Surf Bowl and Estrellas Canyon are well known for some amazing single pitch climbing. This guidebook contains all the route info available at the time of printing. This is the only complete guide for the area.
