Gary, just to to the Potrero. You won't climb on better limestone in north america. And there is enough variety to keep you coming back winter after winter. Not to mention the atmosphere of the camping is the best anywhere. Camp 4 has nothing on it. I got all the beta if you wanna know any details, and I can spray you down on lots of great routes to do as well.
Potrero is way cheap, even for mexico. My sweetheart and I lived like kings for about 30$us a day, including a room in the guest house at Homeros, and eating out every other night. The people around there are way friendly, easy to hitchhike into town and back, so we didn't need a car. You save a lot of money when you don't need to rent a car!meingh wrote:Some friends are planning on being in Potrero but I wanted to see what else people reccommended for that time of year. Feel free to fire of any info you have
I've heard it can be crazy busy around christmas, but I was there the week before, and there was people to talk to, but no line ups. Nothing like Red Rocks over Christmas week, for example!
Bring a warm jacket. Its desert. No wind and no clouds, and you are in a t-shirt, clouds come in, fleece goes on, wind comes up, you want a toque and a shell, at least.
I was there last January/February just after the big Christmas rush and it was super warm and there were rarely any lineups.
If you go there, you'll want a 70m rope for the majority of the climbs. (I rapped to the knot on a few pitches and had to downclimb to reach the anchor. Not fun.) I'm sure you've got tons of route beta already but if you need more, just ask.
Lots of sport, lots of Tufas... maybe in 2007 I'll be going down.
I'm tentatively planning to bus/hitchhike/cycle through North and Central America and possibly South America as well from January to May.
I will be in search of great bouldering, surfing and DWS opportunities! I am only in the first stages of planning the trip so if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
I'm pumped about J Tree, Costa Rica, Belize and every delicious meal along the way!
