Most likely one of the most climbed routes in the valley due to its proximity to the camping. I found the climb to have some really good pitches, and some dirty pitches with lack-luster climbing.P1: You have two options for the 1st pitch, either one of which will be the crux of the route. The original starts in a small left facing dihedral (that is part of a large arc) then moves right onto a slab following bolts. This way is only 11a, but supposedly a little more runout.

Climbing gear in Santiago:
If you're contemplating going to Chile and leaving some gear at home, bear in mind that the cost is going to range for $10 more expensive for harnesses and simple stuff to as much as 30-50% more expensive for things like quickdraws and ropes. If you're looking at these sites, know that 1,000 Chilean pesos is equivalent to about $2.00 US.

Does anyone know of any climbs/bouldering near Villarrica, Chile? I will be moving there for the next couple of months and am not a highly experienced climber (no trad climbing) but would really like to take some of my gear down to experience the area, be outside and get some climbing in. Is it best to go with a guide in this area? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for people I could contact + spots I could look into?
