Little by little Chile is becoming a great place for rock climbing. near Santiago and Patagonia,there's a lifetime of new routes waiting to be open, in Santiago there's places for sport and trad. if you like big wall you want to go to cochamo valley. the Yosemite of south America: big wall, bomb proof granite with great crack climbs.
Once you get to Santiago, you are no more than an hour away from crags, you can get Topos in local climbing shops in Santiago. If you go south, you can either fly or take a bus. Looking for a crag in the middle of nowhere... U got it!
