June Meetup Topic & Host

Join us for our June 18th Member Meetup from 7:30pm – 8:30pm featuring a special presentation about Parque La Huasteca, a climbing area in Mexico just an hour from El Potrero Chico. Gaz Leah just spent 5 years writing a guidebook for Parque La Huasteca and will be hosting this meetup!

Here’s a blurb from his guidebook: 

"Hidden within the majestic valleys of the Sierra Madre Oriental, just outside the sprawling city of Monterrey, lies the wonderland that is Parque La Huasteca.

Gigantic spines of limestone cut the jagged landscape like knives to the heavens and cascading canyons bestow hypnotizing vistas that reach as far as the eye can see. For decades, the park remained elusive to the outside world, an almost mythical place that few ventured into but the enigmatic Huichol people, whose annual pilgrimage to the pay tribute to Abuelo Fuego (Grandfather Fire) has been a tradition for millennia.

In recent years, the park has witnessed an awakening. The tales of its beauty have traveled far and wide, carried by images of its breathtaking scenery and signature views of Pico Independencia. Combined with its incredible selection of climbing routes ranging in grades from 5.7 to 5.14+, and boulders from V0 - V11 as well as numerous big walls, the park continues to attract visitors from across the globe and as far as the U.K., Germany, and Sweden.

Possessing a plethora of activities including sport climbing, bouldering, big walling, running, mountaineering, hiking, cycling, highlining, base jumping, and camping, there is something to quiche the thirst of even the most ambitious adventurer!"
