DescriptionBeautiful little national park and surrounding coast just a short bus or bike ride from the brightly colored twin port cities of old Valparaiso and the 'Miami-like' Viña Del Mar. The plentiful 15m max (45ft max) walls and boulders make this whole coastal stretch bad surfing but good climbing! Interesting combo of very granular tan quartzite-like rock with smooth black volcanic walls mixed in. I didn't notice a ton of trad potential but there are cracks and tons knobs and horns etc. It's a great place to watch the sunset as it blast its final rays on the massive sand dune behind you!
Getting ThereThe 601 bus runs right up the coast and costs the equivalent of $1usd, takes about 20 minutes from Plaza Sotomayor to the park proper but you can hope out anywhere on the coast and find potential spots. If you don't have a lot of gear (top rope and bouldering only as far as I can tell) you can bike the 18k (11 miles) up the road that follows the coast. It's mostly flat and will take about an hour+
