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 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.
