Where are we now? Here’s the journey at a glance…
We’ve finally left the security (?) of the United States and found ourselves south of the border, down Mexico way. Our home for a few weeks is El Potero Chico, a world-class sport climbing destination. We’re talking big wall limestone radness with 20+ pitch routes, entirely equipped with shiny stainless steel hangers. What’s more, the approaches are often in the order of mere minutes and the beers and margaritas are MUY BARATO! What more do you want?
So far, we’ve done a few single pitches and a 7 pitch classic charmingly named “Snot Girlz”, which was a great introduction to the area. We’ll keep y’all posted.
Distance Travelled: 4,119km
