Majestic granite outcrops soar above the restful village of Guatapé, just on the outskirts of Medellín.

El Peñol is packed with over 100 classic sports climbing routes ranging from a few meters to a maximum of 200 meters.

Full of magic and wonder, the enchanting area offers breathtaking scenery and a full disversity of climbs for all levels of ability.

El Peñol is one of Colombia’s biggest granite outcrops that looks down upon the stunning lakeside village of Guatapé.

Regular tourists typically climb the 750-step staircase all the way to the top of El Peñol. For the more adventurous, higher thrills lie in rock climbing to the summit.

The ancient indigenous Tahamí people of the region once worshiped the towering El Peñol.

It was declared a national monument of Colombia all the way back in the 1940s.

The first recorded climb came in 1954 by the three climbers, Luis Villegas, Pedro Nel Ramirez and Ramón Díaz. Summiting the rock took a whole 5 days, which contrasts sharply with the 10-20 minute walk up the staircase.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the majestic Colombian wilderness on a half-day rock climbing trip on El Peñol, close to Medellín.
