Description 

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta are considered by many to be the tallest coastal mountain range in the world. Located about 35 miles from the Caribbean are snow-capped peaks reaching to about 19,000 feet in elevation. See the book Secret Corners of the World (published by National Geographic in May 1982) for pictures and a description of the area.


Getting There 

Climbers historically approached from the inland (rather than Caribbean) side. The approach typically took (takes) several days from the nearest road in San Sebastian. Basecamp has frequently been located at about 14,000 feet elevation near a small lake with a crashed military helicopter.
