Today Hatun Machay is the largest Rock Climbing Centre in Peru. There is an extensive variety of all levels sport routes from absolute beginner to the truly hard core. Hatun Machay is also a boulders dream with enough problems to last a life time.
Hatun Machay is a sport climber’s paradise with bolted routs ranging from level 4 up to 8a. There is also an impressive amount of all level bouldering within a 15 minute walk from the refuge.
The most equipped area to date is the northern face, that which can be seen from the refuge. With that said, there are also new sectors being equipped every month as we open up the amazing potential of Hatun Machay.
In the lower part of the valley we are currently opening up a new region with rock walls at up to 100m. It’s a 30 minutes’ walk from the refuge and offers a breathtaking view of the rock forest.
In agreement with the local community many areas of Hatun Machay have been declared “nature zones”. The aim is to preserve the ecological balance in the area whilst respecting the community’s land and cultural history.
Hatun Machay now boats more than 180 sport routs in a radias of 1 Km or so. A detailed topographical map is available with rout, names, grades, heights and quality at climbs.
Hatun Machay is now considered the first and foremost rock climbing destination in Peru.
