Hey Guys,

I'm am trying to plan a climbing trip to Venezuela for May with some friends and am having a hard time finding info on sport/trad climbing in english. Also, there doesn't seem to be a guidebook available.

Does anyone have any basic info (don't need topos at this point, although they wouldn't hurt :) ) on the main areas that are easy to get to (i.e., not the bouldering area shown in King Lines)?

here is a link I found, but its all in spanish...
http://www.climbingvenezuela.com/

The other country that has a bunch of routes listed in S. America is Columbia...maybe I should look there instead?

Thanks in advance...

go to:
http://babelfish.altavista.com/

then fill in the webpage where it says translate this webpage.

The few pages I looked at translated pretty well.

Thanks for the reply and the link. I guess I was hoping more for a post from someone that has climbed there and can offer some insight in what to expect

Comeon, Chris Sharma can't be the only english speaking climber thats visited the country! Smile

I tried the translated site and a lot of the text is covered up. I think it had to do with the programming of the website. Looks like a fun place to climb though!

Hi, kind of an old thread but I'm going over to Venezuela as well in november, and I'd also like to find some nice areas to climb. Any info would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Bert
