Climbing in Colombia

Written by  in 

We asked Eric Gomez to tell us about the Climbing in Colombia and what he loves about the area.

Q: What is special about this area?

A: The climbing in Colombia is special because climbing is a relatively new sport. So if you’re a climber here, you’re part of something new and part of something that will someday be big (as evidenced in the rest of the world). It is also special because of how different the crags are – not just the type of rock or style, but the environment and the culture of the locals. Colombia is a country divided in three by the Andes. Because of this separation, and how hard it was in olden times to travel, Colombia has areas with very different cultures and accents. Traveling to new places and getting to know them all while practicing the best sport in the world is too enjoyable.

Dahab, Egypt – a new climbing destination

Dahab, Egypt – a new climbing destination

ClimbBnB is all about sharing climbing with other climbers and Dahab, on the Red Sea coast in the Sinai desert of Egypt, is a great example of this. Dahab is a relatively new climbing destination that has benefited from visiting instructors helping the local Bedouin develop a now thriving local climbing scene. 

Twenty years ago, Dahab was a small Bedouin fishing village with a growing tourism trade based on scuba diving and windsurfing. Today, it’s added world-class rock climbing to the mix and developed a great local climbing scene. On any given weekend, you’ll find at least one group of young Egyptians on their way to Dahab to climb. And in a country with nearly 90 million people, around 60% of which are under 30, the potential for climbing is huge. 

We asked Said Khedr and Khaled Mousa to tell us about starting rock climbing in Egypt and what they love about their area.
