|A taste of El Potrero|
Certain routes and certain places speak to me when I climb, and I instantly fell in love with El Potrero Chico, MX, while there over Thanksgiving. The Routes have been set by two men primarily, and I had the luck of meeting Magic Ed while I was down there (and Rachel and I even made his blog!). Their consistency in naming routes is apparent, as they all seem to have the same "theme", although what that theme is exactly I can't really say. I can tell you I loved all of the routes there, and was happy to cap the trip off with my first ever lead of a 10c! More on that in a later blog.
Unique to El Potrero were these fantastic hand-carved plaques to mark the more notable climbs. Here's a little taste:
With three climbing guides to choose from and countless long routes to climb, I'm very much looking forward to getting back to El Potrero and checking more fun routes off the list! See you in Dec 2013 Mexico!
