Description 

An hour north of Bogotá is the sandstone cliff where started the rock climbing in the country approximately 40 years ago.

Today the area boasts more than 300 tracks, with difficulty from 5.6 to 5.14 (?) And up to 4 pitches (approximately 130 meters high).

Getting There 

is at 1 hour in car from Bogota, take the highway for the nort and go to there by the principal way, to tunja, you have to pay 2 sans, then you are nerest, look careful to see the gas station ant the singal of suesca in the left of the way, turn and in 15 minutes you are in the area, you recognize the stores of climbing accesories, and then the train way ant the rocks.

You can also catch a bus from Bogota from the Porta del Norte station on Calle 175. The bus is red and is called Alizana, it costs 6,000 pesos ($3USD), and can drop you off at the exact entrance to the footpath to the crag or other climber's hostels (like El Nomada). Buses run every 15 minutes between Suesca and Bogota.

This starts out with a very cool exposed stance about 40 feet off the ground on a large ledge. It would be a good idea for the belayer to be anchored. The crux is pulling up and over the roof the first clip isn't hard but be careful not to fall while clipping it. Once above the roof you will be pulling on huge craters head left and up over a small roof and then easier climbing to the chains which are back and above a ledge. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
