Summary

This crag has been bolted by Juan Guillermo Correa, the owner of Altitud Mountain Climbing School and Boulder Gym in Medellin.

Description

Mostly slab climbing. Climbable after 13:00 as the sun is very strong.

Regarding the grades, there is no official topo and most routes have no names. There are easy to count through. Juangui gave me some grad ranges. When adding the routes here, I choose the most appropriate grade from his range from my experience (except for 1, 10 and 11, which I didn't try yet). For most routes I tended to choose the upper end. "Es Espejo" I found easier, however that seems to be an elimination problem where you are not supposed to use one obvious rest point a little bit to the right, shortly before the final crux, so I added this route twice.

Topo: https://www.thewanderingclimber.com/escalar-en-medellin-el-muro-de-escalar-escalada-deportiva-colombia/ Notice that the grades are way harder as this topo says. Furthermore one route on the left side is missing.

Approach

With car:

Go to 6.405365, -75.433528 and park on the road.

As it is between two curves it is good to put warning signals 10 meters before and after the car.

With public transport:

From Niquia take the Metro Bus towards Copacabana. It takes about 20 minutes. Get off at "Tiendas de Color Sapolin Girardota" at the bridge. Pass the street and and enter the road north west passing the color fabric. Follow the road about 10 minutes right after a u shaped curve on the left is the crag directly on the street.
