DescriptionT A J G R A P A T A, in Aymara "Peñasco Duro" is a rocky outcrop of volcanic tuffs that together with the erosion of the wind have generated varied forms, walls, ceilings and collapses. It is located at the beginning of the altiplano Tarapaqueño at 4,000 meters above sea level and has been established since 2012 as the official area of Escalada in Iquique.
The area has a camping area located a few meters from the road, where there is a large cavern with fire signals and some pircas. Take water, as there is no place and take precautions as it is at 4,000 meters above sea level. If you want to know about something else about climbing in Iquique, contact Diedro(firstname.lastname@example.org) or the group at FB "Escalada Iquique".
