Who for? Those who want to push themselves and already have experience sport climbing.
We head east of the city to a spot called Garcilazo. Down in the valley looking back up at Sica Sica this place will test your skills and nerve. A 25m high good quality sandstone crag situated on a steep sided valley gives a real feeling of exposure. Ten fully bolted routes ranging from 5.8(USA) 5b (French) to 5.12b(USA) 7b(French) will fully test your skills. Long cracks, painful crimpers and a distinct lack of foot holds can all be looked forward to at Garcilazo. Previous experience essential, must be prepared to lead. (Tip: head down in the morning as this is west facing and gets extremely hot in the afternoons as there are no trees to give shade)
Range of grades: 5.8 (USA) 5b (French) to 5.12b (USA) 7b (French)

Our tours start by meeting by the lions at the Plaza 25 de Mayo (the main plaza in downtown Sucre) and looking for a guy with a ClimbSucre.com t-shirt. We can meet at another location e.g. your hostel if everyone on the tour is staying in the same location. From there we take a short taxi ride to the location where we have a 10 minute walk to the crag. The tour lasts around 4 hours depending on how many are on the tour (though we might be persuaded to stay a little longer if you’re really nice and promise to buy us chocolate) and ends by us catching a taxi back downtown. We generally start a morning tour at 8am or an afternoon tour at 2pm but we are flexible.
Transport to and from the rocks
Climbing shoes and harness
A promise of a dang good time!
What to bring:
A camera. You’ll need some evidence to prove to everyone back home that you actually did it! We are far better climbers than chefs so bring your own food and water! No need for a three course meal, just bring some healthy snacks and plenty of water. Wear loose fitting clothes i.e. shorts and t-shirt and a good pair of shoes as the terrain is rough. No skirts or flip flops (it’s happened…)
Price: Prices are per person and get cheaper the more people you get to join!
1 pax: 350Bs
2-3 pax: 200Bs
4+ pax: 150Bs
