My family walking through the rock forest.


Interesting climbing in a rock garden near where a pre-inca civilization built aqueducts. This is a very beautiful place with rock that has never been climbed. No bolts, aggregate rock that is crumbly in some places, good spots for easy top roping but also some interesting pinnacles. Rainy season is during the Peruvian summer (Dec-March), but if it is not raining the weather is pleasant.

Great protruding rocks in the aggregate. There are many holds and route options on this face. The holds get more scarce as the angle eases at the top of the climb. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
