Hi all! Is anyone going to be in the Bogota area Dec 18-27. I'll be there, will all my climbing gear! Would love to meet up with some folks! Dec 4, 2014

Columbia is a climbing destination with a thriving local community and hundreds of incredibly high-quality routes. If you're not daunted by the logistics of climbing in a foreign country you must put this place on your list. Dec 27, 2016

you.
yes, you!
Do you need a partner to climb in Colombia?
maybe a guide to show you around?
perhaps an instructor to help learn how to lead multipitch trad climbs like a boss??
or do you just need to get some beta (tricks, weather, food, gear, planning, etc)?

Then please don´t hesitate to call or write, i will be happy to help.
i am a guide and instructor with 17+ years climbing and living at Colombia's climbing mecca: Suesca!
