Alex is an IFMGA mountain guide from Colombia and this time he wants to invite you rock climbing in one of the best rocky cliffs of the region: the Suesca Rocks. A full day adventure suitable for all levels of climbers!
The Suesca Rocks are famous worldwide for being one of the best places to practice rock climbing. It is an activity suitable for all levels. In many cases, it’s also a starting point for a rock climbing tour around Colombia.
Thanks to its geological features, such as its high quality sandstone, the rocks of Suesca are a wonderful destination for climbers from all around the world. In addition, here you will find a style of climbing adjusted to your preferences. Its roofs, slaps and traditional routes offer us different itineraries in one single place.
Then, I’d like to share with you a sample program for this climbing day in Suesca. Take a look at the itinerary below.
So, if you find this climbing trip interesting do not hesitate and put in touch with me. It’s an honor for me to guide you in this amazing rocky spot of Colombia!

Explore share came through for me! So helpful!
Alex was a wonderful guide. He prioritized safety and suited the day’s activities to match our ability levels and interests. Climbing in Suesca was a Highlight of our vacation
Alex is an absolutely amazing guide. Very knowledgeable, safe, strong climber with a great sense of humour. He picked great climbs for us and taught us many things about outdoor trad climbing. Would highly recommend.
This was a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors close to Bogota. Alex was a fantastic guide, very capable, and found some routes that fit my abilities and challenged me. It seems that the entire Suesca climbing community knows each other and everyone was super-friendly. I can't say enough about the day I spent out there, it's the best day I've had climbing in a very long time!
