Climbing in Colombia
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.
