Topic - Mexico rock

huwlew - on 20 Nov 2012
Just moved to Mexico and am blown away by the quality of the climbing here. Based in d.f. (Mexico City), which is a hellish megapolis/mental playground, depending on which side your bread's buttered, and struggled to find climbing initially. There are a few walls (notably Levita, a bouldering wall in trendy Roma) but within an hour or two of the centre the potential is huge.

Jilotepec is the current favourite - hard solid conglomerate with an amazing amount of potential - already over a hundred routes, mainly 6a and upwards, with many 7a to 8c, up to 50 ms long. The thing is, the amount of clean, easily accessible prime rock would be inconceivable in Europe. What the (incredibly friendly and welcoming) local climbers need are a few visitors armed with hiltis, bolts, and a few spare weeks to help the development of the area. There are literally thousands of routes in this zone alone.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, drop a line on this thread - and editors - there's a free trip in this for a bit of publicity!
