Description

Very unique pocketed granite. Bolted routes.
On Private Land Details

Getting There

Out of Coyhaique take route 7 south ~1km until you reach "CabaƱas Pie de Monte" on the left of the road going away from town. Drive up the dirt road until you get to a house with a couple greenhouses and apple trees. Park there.

This is the house of Elvis Zamora. To access the climbs you should knock on their door and tell them (unconfirmed) and pay 1,000 Pesos (~$1.75) per person (unconfirmed).

Walk uphill across the field and through the tree farm until you get to the very prominent white granite walls. Finding the bolted routes can sometimes be tricky because a lot of the rock looks similar. Traverse right or left along the wall until you find the routes. The bolted climbs are more to the right of the wall, but depending on how you get up to the wall they may be to your left (duh).

This place is a gem! Approach beta is good, though no one charged us to climb. We did chat with a hard-of-hearing older gentleman and ask to park. Common courtesy would suggest continuing to ask permission to park there.

The rock is some kind of basalt-ish extrusive rock. Pretty grippy and forms columns, though not great splitters.
