Las Viñas (the vineyard) is one of the most classic climbing areas in Lima, it offers multiple options, from grade 4 routes to powerful ceilings, there are routes in both trad and sport, after Camacho it is the most accessible area that we have. At the bottom are boulders.
This crag is accessible by both car and public transport or.
Once at the foot of the hill we have several possibilities to climb the hill. The first and most common is to be the normal rise, shown in the photo as the version on the right. This route is slightly longer than the others but is softer. There are even steps in parts of the route. Another route is the most widely used edge, as in the photo appears as the variant of the left side. This road is a bit shorter but steeper, around one avoids the annoying dogs down there. You just have to go into the tank of water and take the ridge behind it. A point in favor of the way up is your best access to the walls, because there are going by the normal to cross a moraine can be dangerous and confusing days of heavy fog.
Once the walls only need "ratonear" to reach all our destinations.
Always beware of unstable stones and getting lost in foggy days.
Las Viñas was first climbed by a TECSUP climbers in those days was called "Skull tower" by the skull-shaped boulder that is down.
