Climbing in Santiago de Chile

After the heliski season at Puma Lodge I stayed a couple of weeks in Santiago de Chile, where I went climbing at some nearby areas. The spots I visited were Las Chilcas, El Manzano in Cajon del Maipo, and El Arrayan, just outside the city. You can reach all three climbing sites easily using public transport. Las Chilcas offers great steep climbing on conglomerate rock. Unfortunately, it is a noisy spot, because it lies just beside the Panamericana. El Manzano in Cajon del Maipo has single and multi-pitch climbing. El Arrayan is great in hot weather and can be reached within 1 hour from the city center.
