Description

Depends on the time of the year some parts of the rocks can be wet.

Dapa was the first crag developed near Cali. It holds about 20 routes (see topo picture), mostly sport nicely bolted, and a few (3) trad routes. Rock is solid, mostly Diabase/Basalt. Most holds are edges and crimps. Don't hope for pockets.

Getting There

You need to get to the restaurant "Oh Que Rico!" in Dapa, walk uphill on the steep and narrower street until an intersection. There you will find an empty lot. Find a hole on the fence and bushwack towards another fence of a house on the right side of the lot. Follow the trail until you reach the rock outcrop. Border the outcrop downhill and you will find the main wall, Heavy Duty will come first.

****** GETTING TO DAPA ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION *****
You could take public transportation from nearby the main bus terminal in Cali. Ask for the bus that goes to Dapa. There are two type of vehicles, the old school Jeep Willys (aka Camperos), or the minibus by the company La Sultana. Tell them you go to Oh Que Rico! passing the church (they will know). One way ticket is COP $3800 (09/2018) you can pay as you hop on or off. Doesn't matter.
Buses run every 20 or 30 min. Repeat backwards to get back to Cali. I think last bus from Dapa runs at 4:30pm. You want to confirm that.

****** GETTING BY YOUR OWN IN A CAR ******
From Cali drive North towards Menga. Pass all the night clubs until you reach a mini-mall to the left. That's the entrance to Dapa. Follow that road for about 30 min, passing a stone-wall church to your left. You will see the restaurant "Oh que rico!" to your right. Ask for a parking spot.
