What an amazing trip to El Potrero Chico, Mexico. Here are a few photographic highlights.
Here I am with my climbing partner Gary Falk at the entrance to Potrero Chico National Park near the small town of Hidalgo in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This is about 45 minutes from Monterrey. 5 Minute approaches from our house to amazing bolted limestone routes. Climbing Paradise!
This was the beginning to a few hard 5.11 pitches and a big whipper on Fear of Flying (5.12). This was the most rattling of all my falls on the trip – maybe because I took two big falls in a row and was flash-pumped making crux moves to get through the climb! Quite a dynamic, flowing climb with beautiful hard moves. Highly recommended of all the 5.12 routes in Potrero.
It was hot – real hot. And this is the moment I referred to in my other blog posting describing the Time Wave Zero Climb. The most vivid memories are those times where you “Step Up” in life. This was one of mine.
