A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1.1. Las Chilcas 0 routes in Crag

Unique Features And Strengths:

Basically the first sport crag near Santiago.


This used to be one of the easiest and shortest approached crags in Chile, with parking and cliffs just off the highway. Unfortunately, the highway is currently (April 2014) under construction in this region and access to the cliffs is unclear. It should still be possible to hike back from the Torofrut store and restaurant near Llaillay but the construction equipment combined with the highway makes this a less than desirable area to climb right now.

1.3.2. Los Manyos 0 routes in Crag

1.4. El Arrayán 31 routes in Crag


Long/Lat: -70.455071, -33.334217

Unique Features And Strengths:

Beautiful setting with many well bolted sport routes.


Known as "El Bosque Mágical" (The Magical Forest), this area is beautiful. The base of the cliff is well shaded, making it comfortable to climb even on the hottest summer days. The rock is basalt and the routes tend to be more technical than physical. The routes are all bolted to modern standards and there are a range of difficulties, ranging from 5.6 to 5.13s and up. The area can get quite busy on the weekends but will be quieter during the week.

Access Issues:

On private land. The land owner Eduardo will come by to collect a small fee ($1000 pesos, about $2US) per person. Please respect the land by packing out all your trash and staying on the stone lined paths.


Take the road Camino del Cajón until the pavement ends and park here, roughly at S33.333284, W70.462260 . From here walk further along the dirt road until a gated, private dirt road branches off to the right. Follow this through the gate until you reach a dry river bed. On the left is a stone lined path. Take this until you reach the crag.


This area has only recently been developed, starting around 2006.
