About Half Hill:

This is a strange hill which looks like it's top has been cut in half, it's about 2 to 3 miles inland of the coastal town of pichidangui and you can drive right up to it if you can find the trail, if you need orientation there is a police station off the main highway at the southern tip of the town, it shouldn't be too hard to find however, the top of the hill has a large rock face looking out towards the main highway. This place supports mostly trad although some routes are rumoured to be bolted for sport climbers as well. There is a smaller face on the hill's northern side not readily apparent from the highway.
