So I'll be in La Paz, Bolivia with my girlfriend tomorrow looking to get out to the sport climbing near Zona Sur. We have shoes and chalk, but no other gear.

I suppose my first question is if anyone on the forum wants to meet up and do some routes. I lead up to 5.12-, and she's leading low 10s.

In any case, does anyone know if the shops on Calle illampu or sagarnaga will rent us a rope and draws?

Thanks!

Just show up at La Galleta around 10 am. See topos bolivia on facebook for directions. There will be lots (maybe 10) of people there. Because there are so few climbers here, people are really friendly so they will welcome you. I have to go train my horse some more or I would meet you there. If you have some more time, let me know. I have made many new routes in the area. Chris Clarke

Thanks Chris! Wwondering had massive success.

First, we were able to rent harnesses, a rope, and draws from Christian at andean base camp on Calle illampu. It seems like his hours are irregular, but a lady at a store across the street told us to ring 3-b on the door next to the shop and that seemed to work.

The directions Here were perfect - you just walk 100m past the bridge and the Galleta is right uphill.

And best of all, there was a very friendly crew climbing there, who was happy to give us beta on the few climbs that weren't labeled.
