What is Potrero Chico?

Last updated: November 22, 2011

El Potrereo Chico is a canyon outside the municipality of Hidalgo in the state of Nuevo Leon in Mexico. The canyon is both a city park for Hidalgo with pools and recreation areas, as well as an internationally renowned sport climbing mecca. Most of the climbs are located at the entrance to the park and all feature very quick approaches. Beyond the city-owned part of Potrero Chico is a semi-public native Mexican reservation that includes additional climbing and natural springs.
