Cerro Trinidad Rock Climbing
Alex Honnold on Las Manos del Dia, 5.11+, Trinidad...
The large ~3000 ft dome was the first major formation climbed in the valley in the late 90s. Since then its seen many more ascents via new lines including the classic Bienvenidos a mi Insomnio, a 20 pitch, completely free line at a doable 5.11a. Also don't miss the ten-pitch 5.10d E.Z. Does it, 12-pitch 5.10a Send It Like Santa and the 12-pitch 5.11+ Las Manos del Dia. Other routes include hard free climbing, aid climbing, and there are a few relatively shorter moderates on the north face and deeper in the Trinidad Valley. Even with all the activity there are still plenty of options for new lines to be had. The rock quality is excellent, but it isn't uncommon to come across dirt filled cracks. Once cleaned, however, will stay clean thus a gift to the many who will follow.
From the Camping La Junta, cross the Cochamó River via the cable car en route to the Refugio Cochamó. There is a signed fork before the refugio. Follow the Trinidad signs. The hike can take anywhere from 1:30 to 3 hours depending on your speed. It's a steep hike. The first camp has about four or five tent spots and sits at the base of Trinidad. The second and more beautiful camps is one hour further into the Trinidad canyon.

: ... : Cerro Trinidad
This is one of THE routes to do while in Cochamo, long, sustained, solid and mostly clean rock, and just plain fun climbing. It's possible to rap off the first 14 pitches, and most of the anchors above that have a least one bolt or fixed gear. The first few pitches and the last few pitches can be a little confusing to find, so it wouldn't be a bad idea getting a little beta from the refugio before doing the climb. A topo of the route can found at cochamo.com along with another route descript...[more] Browse More Classics in International
