This description is, obviously, fairly poor. This area is called "Cerro El Indio." The description mentions camping, but visitors should definitely not camp here. It is private property, and the local climbers have so far developed a positive relationship with the owner to permit climbing. Cerro El Indio is indeed a very cool climbing resource walking distance from town. Locals have been developing more and more climbing, and it likely could become a true "destination" sport crag some day. Currently, it has single and multi-pitch routes from 5.8 to projects that are probably 5.14, and there's plenty more rock to develop at all grades.

That all said, climbing is pretty new to Chile Chico and has so far been received quite well by the community - they've even started hosting RocTrip-style festivals! There is a dedicated local climbing scene as well that is very friendly and super motivated! This is all to say that treating this place with respect and treading lightly (and simply representing foreigners and climbers well) is very important for the future of this special place.
