Buying a crash pad in Peru??

Has anybody done bouldering in Peru? I'm trying to find a store in Lima that would sell crash pads, but I'm not having any luck. I'm flying in next Friday for 11 days and getting my crash pad there is almost impossible thanks to only being allowed one checked bag (no option for a second).

A fellow member posted the link down below, but I'm having trouble translating, my Spanish is no muy bien.

I was hoping somebody had been there before and could give me the scoop on if Lima would even have a store that sells pads or what I should do. Any help would be appreciated.

Tattoo in Larcomar may have some idea where to get one. Ask at the (only) climbing gym: basecamp. Best thing is to go there: Diez Canseco, 374, Miraflores. www.basecampperu.com. Somebody at Tattoo may speak English if you're really lucky. The guys at the gym certainly can't.

Other than that, you're out of luck. There are very few climbers in Lima and almost no equipment for sale. I wholesale climbing gear in Latin America and just got back from a sales trip to Lima. It's still a real fringe activity there. The list on airepuro is pretty worthless and out of date. Some of those stores are large department stores, others are wholesalers.
