Chile isn't the first name that springs to mind when you think of major international climbing destinations. However, that may be about to change with an incredible new area currently exploding in popularity within the country. The area in question is called Valle de los Cóndores and consists of a series of basalt cliffs with incredible climbing and the potential for hundreds of routes. However, the area may soon come under threat with a proposed hydro-electric project being undertaken near the climbing. We talked to Felipe Luisi, an American climber based in the area who has shot some incredible footage of the climbing and the surrounding landscape. Next we’re off to Banana Fingers to find out which boulder pad is the best for tackling highballs. Cailean is profiling three great choices for boulderers looking to climb taller problems. Check out the video to find out which he judges best out of the Snap Grand Wrap, the Petzl Cirro and the Trangoworld Air Pad.
