Valle Encantado - Argentina

Another country, another crag . . . but probably the best sport one we have visited in South America.

It was so good that we decided to spend two weeks between here (and Rapa Nui in Bariloche - a chocoloteria which served torta de mil hojas - a kind of meile fille on acid - amazing.) Check out the pictures, of the climbing that is- not the cakes.

At last . . . something to climb.

After, far too many miles (4,000), a second continent and far too many sessions on one of these . . .

. . . we are climbing again. And in a truly magical, mysterious and mind-blowing place - Hatun Machay, Peru.

It's a place not only with exceptional climbing but great historical significance - as you wonder through and between the misty towers of climbing, and ancient stone huts

you often find 10,000 year old Moche arrow-heads scattering the floor

Anyway, enough of the history lesson, lets get down to the climbing! Here's a few shots i took, and had taken of me . . .
