Quebrada Verde / Lomas de Lucumo Rock Climbing
Tiny flowers along the trail
Early hours can be foggy/misty, but sunshine filters trough so use sunscreen even if it's not sunny. Heavy fog from June to November, rock may get slick.
Grey granite cliffs with solution cracks, from fingers to offwidth and roof cracks. Caves and boulders, up to highball. Several developed routes and plenty of potential for further development
~$2 entrance fee per person (S./5.50 by Apr. 2014). Plant and wildlife are protected in this fragile ecosystem. Stay on trails at all times.
Additional info at the Lomas de Lúcumo homepage
Ask the gatekeeper for parking arrangements, usually behind the "bodega" (small convenience store). Hike from there up the hill trough a sandy slope and turn back left when the trail becomes evident. Switchbacks will take you up some 800 ft altitude gain. Consider half an hour for the hike.
