El Potrero Chico, Mexico: Climbing+Limestone+Tacos=Good living / by Drew Smith

One of the benefits of living in a van with everything I own is the lack of responsibility and the freedom to make impulse decisions. Around the middle of November a good friend of mine Savannah asked me to go on a climbing trip to Mexico with her. I really had no good excuse not to go and within a week we were gone! I had heard of this place for years (El Potrero Chico), stories of multi-pitch sport climbing on beautiful limestone, cheap tacos and good living.

The first multi-pitch climb we did was Snot Girlz

The fog and palm trees on top of mountains were mystical
