Summary

Las Viñas is one of the first climbing areas to be developed in Lima. Located within Parque Ecologico de la Molina, there are a variety of routes ranging from delicate slabs to powerful roofs.

Description

Upon entry to the park, climbers are asked to have their temperature measured, provide a form of identification, and carry a helmet. Parking is limited, so expect it to be full in the early mornings, especially on weekends. The recommended way to enjoy a day in Las Viñas is to arrive early and start the approach before the sun rises. This way you can climb in the shade until noon, then head down and enjoy some well deserved lunch.

Approach

Start from the parking lot and head up the winding path, being mindful of passing cyclists and runners. You can follow this path until eventually reaching the mountain's left "arete" and continuing up from there. Your second option is to split rightwards from the path and follow a trail leading to a guard house/lookout point. From here, hike alongside the stonewall towards your intended sector. In total, each approach is about 1.5km in distance and 350m in elevation gain.

Ethic

Make sure to stick to the established trails and avoid creating new ones.
