Hello!
My partner and I are planning a climbing trip to South America. We're both sport climbers and boulderers (not looking for alpine or trad climbing).
Looking for a cheap, fun, cool place that will have sufficient climbing for at least a month during the next few months (need to leave before Feb.).
Got any suggestions? Tips? Please share!
Thanks

Yoav, Colombia has great climbing! Near Bogota, the capital city, there's Suesca (mostly trad but still plenty of Sport). After checking out Suesca there's Zipaquira, 1.5hrs away and a great sport climbing spot with 120+ routes! Finally, there is La Mojarra which is the Sport Climbing Mecca of Colombia, it is some 7-8 hours away from Bogota by bus, with over 100+ routes of astonishing quality and a view you can't match. Staying and traveling in Colombia is dirt cheap! Let me know if you guys decide to come, I'll be climbing around the country for the next couple of months!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
