FAQs: Rock Climbing in Chile

What should I know about Rock Climbing Chile?

The territory of Chile forms a long and narrow strip that is naturally squeezed between the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andean mountains to the east. The country is 2,653 miles long, yet just 110 miles wide on average. To the north and northeast Chile borders Peru and Bolivia, while to the east it borders Argentina and shares much of the Andes, and the Drake Passage lies to the south. Its extreme length creates a deep diversity of climates and terrain, with the mountains playing a prominent role.

Why should I choose Chile for my Rock Climbing adventure?

Climb the famous Andes

The Andes mountain range runs down South America like a spine, while Chile homes a rich collection of the highest peaks on the range. Mountains such as the Ojos del Salado (6,893m), Parinacota (6,348m), Incahuasi (6,620m) and Llullaillaco (6,739m) are but a few of the colossal summits that can be climbed while offering fantastic natural views.

Bubbling volcanic beauty

The Chilean Andes are crowded with volcanic mountains that are both extinct and dormant. The country is home to approximately 2,900 steamy summits, including some of the world’s highest and mightiest volcanoes. Around 90 are classified as active. In Chile you can discover these tormenting rocky giants and climb upon their giant red backs.

Ancient mountain culture

The Andes provide spectacular scenery and quality rock climbing, yet the mountains are cloaked in ancient cultures and customs. For the Inca Empire, the summits were sacred and home to the gods, where they controlled from. The Cerro el Plomo was frequently climbed by the Incas as a ceremonial site. While Osorno is home to the legend of an evil spirit that lives within the rock and lets out a fury of magma when people attempt to conquer its peak.
