he summit is not the goal. The only important thing is to go by unexplored and complicated routes. Plenty of force and sacrifice in order to conquer the obstacles that the nature imposes us. Maximum concentration when climbing the enormous rocks that impede the ascent.
In the Andean World, therels an enormous potential for the practice of climbing; in Peru, for example, the mountains of the department of La Libertad and the area of Cumbemayo in the southern area of the department of Cajamarca, are perfect scenarios for the practice of rock climbing while in Ecuador, the best area is in the provice of Azuay.
The adventure of rock climbing can also be experienced in Bolivia, there are three places suitable for this practice: Runy Campaņa ( 60 strips; 4 + / 8a french scale) in Oruro, El Peņon de Aranjuez located in la Paz and Curahuara de Carangas, also in Oruro.
Climbing without hurry to avoid any fall, only steel nerves allow you to defeat a steep rock and to manage the fear of an unexpected landslip, just one of the many risks of this adventure sport that began to be practiced in Scotland more than 200 years ago and that now is very popular in the Andean heights.
Rock climbing in Peru, Ecuador or Bolivia will definetely be an unforgettable experience.
