Description 

South of Lima the coastline is very rocky and provides many opportunities for climbing and bouldering. Much of the rock is often very brittle and loose but there are many places with good quality rock and sometimes it is mixed in amongst the bad. The area is very undeveloped and there is still a lot to be found, cleaned and developed, but there are opportunities for bouldering, sport and trad climbing, beach bouldering and even deep-water soloing. Bouldering is abundant in Pucusana, and can also be found at Punta Negra and Chilca.

Getting There 

From Lima travel is cheap along the Panamerican highway and to Pucusana and Chilca you'll need to take a bus or taxi. Along the coast travel is cheap and access is for the most part, pretty easy.
