Comments: Anybody know anything about a 3-5 pitch 5.9 up the north side? When I was last up there in October, 2010, there was an entry in the register from some guys who claimed to have gone at it that way. It's steep enough for it, though can't say anything about the rock quality.

Comments: Climbing gear in Santiago:

If you're contemplating going to Chile and leaving some gear at home, bear in mind that the cost is going to range for $10 more expensive for harnesses and simple stuff to as much as 30-50% more expensive for things like quickdraws and ropes. If you're looking at these sites, know that 1,000 Chilean pesos is equivalent to about $2.00 US.

Comments: Two other Chile climbing websites:

This first one is better than it looks at first glance! Check out the climbing area map.

Comments: Painful ledge-decking potential between bolts 2 and 3 on this route. Be careful there!
