Comments: Anybody know anything about a 3-5 pitch 5.9 up the north side? When I was last up there in October, 2010, there was an entry in the register from some guys who claimed to have gone at it that way. It's steep enough for it, though can't say anything about the rock quality.

Comments: The weather was surprisingly good last year in mid-February. We had sun every day, and the winds weren't bad at all. Talked to some folks on my way back north through Chile, and they said March had also been swell. Earlier is generally better, however. Good luck!

Comments: Climbing gear in Santiago:

www.andesgear.cl
www.tatoo.cl
www.justclimb.cl
www.chilemontaƱa.cl
www.lacumbreonline.cl

If you're contemplating going to Chile and leaving some gear at home, bear in mind that the cost is going to range for $10 more expensive for harnesses and simple stuff to as much as 30-50% more expensive for things like quickdraws and ropes. If you're looking at these sites, know that 1,000 Chilean pesos is equivalent to about $2.00 US.

Comments: Two other Chile climbing websites:

This first one is better than it looks at first glance! Check out the climbing area map.
