Hot Rock climbing Expeditions is back!

Hot Rock Expedition South America 2015, Courses, holidays, expeditions, accommodation Premier Post, 2 weeks @ GBP 35pw  © Mackenzie


Patagonia – Cordillera Blanca
January 3rd – July 1st 

Take a big red specially converted climbing expedition vehicle.
Add 20 – 25 climbers from all over the world.
Head off across the globe.
Stop off at the best established climbing areas in 
Africa, South America or Asia.
Develop new crags as we pass
And be part of local cultures where ever we go.

That’s Hot Rock.

In January 2015 Hot Rock will be back in South America, cragging our way through what is quite possibly the greatest climbing continent in the world.

Thanks to the enormous effort put in by Hot Rockers over the past few trips, crashing their way through South America (quite literally sometimes), bolting new lines, cleaning new routes, getting scared on big walls, and discovering new crags and boulders we now have a comprehensive itinerary of the best of the best.

The trip will be starting off in Argentina and rumbling ever northwards through the outstanding scenery of Chile, experiencing the diverse culture and adventurous high altitude road networks of Bolivia before crossing Lake Titicaca and entering Peru, home to the amazing Hatun Machay and towering peaks of the Cordillera Blanca, (Machu Picchu isn’t bad either!).

This will quite possibly be the best climbing, the most climbing and the most adventurous climbing that you will ever do. We’ll keep each other psyched, get those projects ticked, lay siege to big walls and maybe, just maybe, you will get your own slice of history and put up a new route in a far flung corner of the world for others to enjoy.

So this is an invite to you all, the world of climbers, JOIN US, the great unwashed, the climbing dirtbags, the cragrats. The truck leaves in January. Be on it and become one of us. The Hot Rockers!

If this sounds good, visit the expedition website and get in touch. There are a limited number of spaces on the Big Red Truck so secure your seat!
