In terms of altitude... Do you happen to know where is located the highest sportclimb in the world?

I really dont care if is a multipitch climb or a singlepitch 45feet wonder. Just want to know the altitude at the base and its location.

I think I heard that there is some 5.10 at 13,000feet high in Argentina but I got no details about it.

There's stuff on the Sphynx in the Cordillera Blanca that's higher than that. I don't remember the names of any of the routes.

Not sure about "highest" or "hardest highest" or whatever, but Caldwell's Sarchasm is a 14a at about 13,000 feet.

There is a climbing area in northern Argentina named Tuzgle, at 13-14000 feet. There are hundreds of boulder problems (v0-v9) and about thirty bolted routes (last I heard) up to hard 12s. A friend of mine went there a couple of months ago and said the place was incredible, and the potential for bouldering and routes is pretty much infinite. You can see more info here (in Spanish):
