FAQs: Rock Climbing in Colombia

What should I know about Rock Climbing Colombia?

Colombia is a tropical country in South America and the southernmost part of Central America. Bordering Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Panama, the vast geographic range and elevation differences throughout the country make it as diverse as it is beautiful. When it comes to rock climbing and outdoor recreation, Suesca is the most well-known spot, though there are plenty of other great destinations. La Mojarra has over 300 sandstone climbs in the Chicamocha National Park, though its biggest appeal is arguable the jaw-dropping views – consider staying at the Refugio de la Roca. The monolith of El Penol outside of Guatape also has phenomenal granite slabs to climb (as well as an iconic 750-step staircase), all the way up to 120-meter wall.

Why should I choose Colombia for my Rock Climbing adventure?

Tropical Adventure!

After a long day of working up a sweat on some sweet sandstone climbs, Colombia's vibrant culture and landscape allows you to explore one of it's unique and defining features. Pisba Natural National Park and the Cordillera de los Cobardes are just close enough to head into the countryside for a visually stunning and unforgettable journey that only Colombia can provide.

Everybody Can Climb!

Some areas have some pretty serious climbs and death-defying routes - I'm looking at you, Macheta and La Florian. Others, however, including the massive and well-developed Suesca area, have something for everyone, and a lot of it. Sport climbers in search of a quick day jaunt will be happy with Zipa and its notable 5.10s and 5.11s.

Unbelievable Views!

From a granite monolith rising 120 meters into the sky to moss overhangs looking out across lush rolling hills, you will most definitely be distracted by the unrelenting beauty of the Colombian countryside. Superbly green and picturesque, grab your camera and make sure you get proof of the incomparable landscape - words won't do it justice.

This was absolutely phenomenal. Hernan not only brought me to some incredibly beautiful climbs, but he taught me so much. We got so many routes in, and it was one of the best experiences of my life getting to climb in Colombia. Suesca is absolutely beautiful, and anyone looking to climb here must go with Hernan. I cannot reccomend him enough.
