Description

Located in the Chicamocha Canyon, one of the largest in the world, canyon with 108.000 hectares, formed 46 million years ago and cover in ancient times by a lake, that allowed the formation of caves and incredible cliffs. La Mojarra climbing park extends for a kilometer and a half in the hearth of the canyon, the orange compact sand stone has more than 200 routes in rating from 5.7 to 5.14 and some projects.
All routes have been protected with high security criteria. In the morning, sunny conditions are hard, but after 12:00 soft conditions with the rock completely in the shadow and the temperature decreasing gives you the chance to enjoy a perfect climbing, in beautiful and aerial scenery. The whole canyon continues with an infinite bolting possibility remaining.
Talking about history the park was discovered 17 years ago by Partners Juan Carlos Poveda, Juan Carlos Santander, Alejandro Navas and Fabian Carreño, who began with the protection of the routes in 1999, Ricardo Cancelado, Juan Sebastian Ragua and some other climbers from Bogota keep with the development of the climbing area this last year.
The accessibility of the place is very comfortable, is about 40 miles from the city of Bucaramanga at Mesa de Los Santos, department of Santander. Just 50mts from the entrance to the park is Refugio la Roca a very nice Refugio for climbers, located on the top of the cliff; the owners are a Colombia couple, both of them climbers and the ones bolting most of the routes for the last 4 years. They have a very update guidebook, equipment rental, and a store where you can find basic equipment, resoling service and a very peaceful and quiet environment for climbers.

The weather is good all year (The forecast on this website is not right)
