About Cerro La Campana:

One of the higher peaks in the low costal range of hills, this large hill is the pinacle of the Cerro La Campana national park. The hill itself can be climbed in about 6-10 hours via a clearly defined trail, the summit is all rock and has a lot of trad routes. Another climbing area (Las Bandurrias) is down by the base of the hill just inside the park north of the town of Granizo.

Climbing inside the park is generally not permitted, however you can ask permission to climb at the park admittance area, sneaking in is another alternative and they will ask you to leave if they find you. negotiation is possible, however, DO NOT attempt to bribe park officials. drinkable water is available about 300 meters down the trail from the mine that marks the end of the road, this water is probably best filtered or boiled.

Nearest town or city: Olmue
Directions: Access from Olmue to the foot of the hill, 4x4s (preferably) can drive nearly all the way to the summit climbing area over a one lane road, there is little traffic on the road and it's a short hike to the rock. The other alternative is hauling equipment uphill for about 4 hours on well defined trails. See the description of Las bandurrias for instructions on how to get to that area
