El Potrero Chico, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Photos by by Adam Bove / adambove.carbonmade.com - The winter paradise of Potrero Chico is located in the town of Hidalgo, about 30 minutes away from the massive city of Monterrey, Mexico, just a couple hours beyond the Texas border. The scene is small, relaxed and the limestone sport routes are plentiful. The cliffs vary from powerful, pocketed single-pitch to soaring, monster multi-pitch towers — containing a variety of slabs and overhanging walls for all abilities. The food is good, the people are amazing and the climbing is perfect. Shown in this gallery is a small collection of shots taken by Bove in December 2008.
