I n the middle of the steppe, Piedra Parada emerges by the Chubut river, offering world class sport climbing in a wild environment.

The climbing at the Piedra and inside La Buitrera, its neighbor canyon, is superb, from single pitch beginner routes to multipitch hardcore 5.14´s.

The access is easy, the days are long and it rarely rains. The Piedra Parada experience combines great climbing, relaxing camping by the river and the solitude and quietness of the dessert.

Piedra Parada Climbing

Bariloche is our starting point, where we meet, make an introduction to the trip and enjoy dinner together in town.

On our first day we drive South on the mythical Ruta 40, the one that follows the Argentinean Andes north to south. This scenic drive slowly take us from green tall mountains to the desolated steppe, then inside the Chubut Valley where we find the Piedra Parada.

At this magic spot we spend the next five days climbing, learning, hiking, and enjoying great cuisine by the fire. Pulling hard during the day and chilling by the river on the evening makes this trip a truly relaxed experience, but with lots of meters to cover on top notch rock.

“Traveled from all the way from Montana in the US to Bariloche purposefully to climb the granite spires at Cerro Catedral and Piedra Parada Crags. Something for everyone at any level – friction, cracks – and the occasional low flying condor.  Fun climbs in a gorgeous setting. Juan P and AMG are a class act.
