Description 

Florián is an absolutely amazing climbing and caving destination. When you drive into the valley, you see gigantic limestone formations for miles all around. There are many different crags and numerous gigantic cave systems. The most famous and easily accessible cave to climb in is Las Ventanas de Tisquizoque. It is about 1 mile from town and has at least 15 sport routes from 5.8 to 5.13+. The entire region is full of limestone cliffs and the potential for new routes is endless. Florián offers a lifetime of climbing opportunities.

Getting There 

Florián is about 10 hours from Bogota but be aware the last few hours are all dirt roads and can be slow moving.
