This country is awesome, you can find places for climbing trad, sport, mix and bouldering. Bogota, the capital city, has great gyms for indoor training. Near to the city there are a lots of places and towns to make your adventure special and the important. Everywhere the people are so nice, the most popular place for rock climbing is called Suesca: it is an one hour drive, there are most than 400 routes. Sandstone, very good with your hands, the weather is pretty and you can make your camp just at 2 minutes at the first routes. Nearby exist places where you can find hamburgers and beers and more.
