Hot Rock: climbing South America end to end
Northbound, Patagonia to the Carribean
From January to September 2012 Hot Rock will be cragging throughout South America.
We travel from Santiago to Tierra del Fuego, at the continent's southernmost tip, then up through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela, to the shores of the Carribean sea.
As usual the links on the right take you to the page for the relevant section of the trip.
I've used every bit of experience gained from 5 years of running trips to try to make sure that this one is the best of all time.
We should be in climbing venues nearly 70% of the time, spending more time at the major crags rather than trying to stop off at every small piece of rock we find.
The timing and route are designed to ensure that we hit climbing season in every single destination through the trip.
Of course, as we rumble up the spine of the Andes, we'll make sure we don't miss any of the major non-climbing stuff either.
Enjoy the read and get in touch.
