1-day Sport climbing and hot springs in Cajón del Maipo, near Santiago

My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!

There are many reasons for choosing Rock Climbing in Chile

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.

More info about Rock Climbing in 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
