Breakfast Club Peak Rock Climbing
Morning sun in early spring on the approach but the route will stay in the shade. Mostly good rock with patches of loose rock or vegetation.
Follow the trail to Tarahumara Pass; after approx. 30 min you will see a climbers trail that splits off to the left (at the time of posting there was a cairn with "5AM" marked on the rock.
Follow this trail as it winds upwards through the vegetation until it deposits you at the base of 3rd/4th class rock. Do a bit of scrambling; always following a worn climbers trail. After 4 or 5 vertical scrambles you will end up on a ridge with a small Gendarme guarding the base of the route. Work your way around the hiker's left side of the gendarme (exposed but flat/level) and continue for 2 more minutes to the base of the climb; a poor landing area; and a single belay bolt.
Climbing Season For the El Potrero Chico area.
