Columbia is dangerous


This country is awesome, you can find places for climbing trad, sport, mix and bouldering. Bogota, the capital city, has great gyms for indoor training. Near to the city there are a lots of places and towns to make your adventure special and the important. Everywhere the people are so nice, the most popular place for rock climbing is called Suesca: it is an one hour drive, there are most than 400 routes. Sandstone, very good with your hands, the weather is pretty and you can make your camp just at 2 minutes at the first routes. Nearby exist places where you can find hamburgers and beers and more. This is just a little description for all the beautiful places of this country

Getting There

Follow the wide crack up from the base I would bring triples in 2 or you will have to do a lot of bumping. Follow it past a strange lieback move and work out good hands to a roof. The route ends there....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Columbia is a climbing destination with a thriving local community and hundreds of incredibly high-quality routes. If you're not daunted by the logistics of climbing in a foreign country you must put this place on your list.

yes, you!
Do you need a partner to climb in Colombia?
maybe a guide to show you around?
perhaps an instructor to help learn how to lead multipitch trad climbs like a boss??
or do you just need to get some beta (tricks, weather, food, gear, planning, etc)?

Then please don´t hesitate to call or write, i will be happy to help.
i am a guide and instructor with 17+ years climbing and living at Colombia's climbing mecca: Suesca!
