Description

This is the most extensive sport climbing area around Santiago. It´s set in a beautiful desert environment but it's right off the highway and can be hot and noisy. The rock is conglomerate and has some of the fragility typical of the rock type. There are few easy routes now that they widened the highway and dynamited some good rock but there are lots of moderates and hard climbs (5.13/14).

Camping- this is public land so you can camp where you can. Beware of thieves and vinchucas (basically a bed bug on steroids that can give you an uncurable diease- mal de chagas).

Bring water!

Getting There

Take 5 going north of 80 kms north of Santiago. You enter the canyon and eventually you´ll see tall rock walls. Pull over and park after the ¨Los Loros¨ bridge. Access to the other side of the highway can be found if you walk back up the canyon and go through a tunnel under the highway.
