Description

Cajón del Maipo is an impressive canyon near Santiago, Chile’s capital city, offering climbing possibilites for everyone.  This 2-day trip is one of the best ways to discover this great rock climbing destination in the Metropolitan Region.

I will take you to experience the classic routes in this unique place in the Chilean Central Andes, no matter your level. Whether you are looking to venture yourself into rock climbing for the first time, you are a beginner or an advanced climber, we will find the route that best suits you, always surrounded by spectacular views.

A very interesting place to explore is Lo Valdes formation, near Baño Morales, where we find fantastic climbing opportunities, like Placa Verde ( 400-meter/sport climbing) and Placa Roja, probably the most classic route in Cajón del Maipo (200-meter/5.8 trad). The Pared de Jabbah (100-meter wall/multi-pitch sport climbing) offers some of the best views in the area.

Bear in mind this is a flexible trip, so if you want to experience a more challenging climb or a longer approach, just let me know and I will take you to the best climbing location for your objective. It is also possible to join this trip for a multipitch introduction.

We run the best alpine and Andean climbing school in this area, offering some of the best classic climbing and rock scrambling tours. At the end of the trip, we will enjoy the classic local handcrafted beer and delicious “empanadas”!

About the guide

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Guide from Chile

Guiding since 2001, before I started to guide clients in mountains I finished my studies as Tourism Technician (rafting & hydrospeed class 3). I like alpine climbing but also multiday hiking trips in Patagonia, some times I do logistic support for scientific expeditions and also avalanche control with Gazex, Avalancheur, Helibombing in operational areas (AIARE 2 rec).

Ice climbing in the Chilean Central Andes near Santiago is great during Jun/Sep as the rock climbing in Cajón del Maipo, plenty of 4000-5000 meters peaks are waiting to be visited, some of them with possibility of new routes, actually its possible to explore a lot and I have many proyects in differents regions of Chile!!!
