Description

La Paz City is the best place in Bolivia for rock climbing. In the city, which is just fifteen minutes away from downtown, there are some rocks where you can find over 150 routes from 5a to 8a. The rock is a mixture of conglomerates and sandstone.

Just one hour south of the city lies a huge 200-meter-high boulder with close to 100 multi-pitch routes on Andesite, a soft local granite version. If you drive for another hour, close to Titicaca Lake, you will find Peñas, a sandstone paradise with hundreds of single and multi-pitches from 4 to 8a.

On the Itinerary section you will find a proposed itinerary for a 3-day trip. But if you want to go climbing for just 1 day, one can choose among the many options around La Paz.

From the routes, the views of the glaciated mountains of the Andes are truly splendid. Each place needs at least one day's visit. You can decide how many days and which places to visit. There are routes for all levels. If you are not a climber but want to learn, we can teach or make you practice and improve your climbing skills.

So, if you are up for this rock climbing trip near La Paz, please get in touch with me.

Itinerary

Day 1: Bartolina Sisa Park in La Paz

We will meet at the Bartolina Sisa Park in Zona Sur in La Paz. After a five-minute walk, we will be at the base of the climbing routes. There are several outcrops and sectors, and we will choose the routes according to your skills.

Day 2: Pomani

Day 2. Early one-hour drive south to Pomani, a small Aymara village in the middle of the Altiplano, in front of a huge rocky outcrop. We will follow a ten-minute walk from the parking to start climbing. By mid-afternoon, we will head back to the city.

Day 3: Peñas Climb

Another early departure to get to Peñas. It is an eight-kilometer-long sandstone range in front of the Cordillera Real, the Royal Mountain Range of the Andes. We plan to climb a multi-pitch in the morning and a few single pitches in the afternoon, but we can adjust it to your interests.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia

I first visited the Andes when I was 14 years old, and that's when the love of nature and Mountains started. Since then the "Call of the Hills" has not diluted and I dedicated my life to work as a mountain guide.

Proper training started in 1984 with the aid of the German government and the German Alpine Club (DAV). Then a group of Bolivians were certified as a mountain guide’s instructors. After many years of negotiation, Bolivia succeeded in becoming a member of the International Mountain Guides Association (IMGA, UIAGM, IVBV) in 2005. That's when I achieved the international Certification.

I also studied Film Making and hold a Masters degree on Script Writing and worked on some documentary projects with the BBC.

I lead trekking and climbing groups in Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina and Chile and speak Spanish, English and French.
