MINERAL DEL CHICO

El Chico National Park

The park with more than 2,730 hectares, offers the expert climber and the amateur more than 200 rock formations of all types, elevations, and degrees of difficulty, to practice rock climbing.

Among the most outstanding elevations are some that exceed 150-meter (492 feet) in height, such as the so-called "Las Monjas", "Peña del Cuervo", "Del Sumate" and "El Espejo", among others. El Fistol del Diablo (Devil's Pistol), is one of the most famous routes in the park and consists of a vertical ascent, but it is a good option for beginners.

La Ventana Mayor, on its north face is a long route and reaches the summit of 3000 meters above sea level, which is the highest point in the entire park; the ascent is fun but with distant anchorages so it is recommended for advanced climbers.

La Rosendo on its north face is a hidden rock that offers a very technical but at the same time fun sports route on one of the cleanest vertical walls in the region, this route is definitely for experts.

There are also small walls for beginners.

Actopan

Rock Climbing in Hidalgo

El Arenal has five sectors: el Basilisco, la Cueva, los Desplomes, las Bolas and la Colmena.

Las Bolas has many rocks for those who enjoy this type of climbing and it is the ideal sector for low grade climbers.
