Rock climbing partner wanted in Huehuetenango and the rest of Guatemala. I climb sport and boulder, presently I've been climbing at the Piedras Cuaches in the Cuchumatanes. I have my own sport climbing gear, and I'd love to hit Amatitlan with someone or just go bouldering. I don't know too many of the climbing areas around here.

Hey, you should visit Xtreme Gym in Guatemala City, there's people there that use to go every weekend to Amatitlan.

I've been trainning there and the folks have great skilks. Very nice to hang out with them.

drop me a line if you are interested.

Forgot to tell you. Some people have told me about piedras cuaches but I don't have enough time to go there now. If you have some pictures, please send me some. I have some of amatitlan and atitlan.

You have pictures of Atitlan? Why don't you put them up, I wish there were more info on climbing in Atitlan.
I've climbed in amatitlan with the guys from the Confede gym (is that the gym you´re talking about) it was pretty cool.

As far as the Cuaches, I'm working on Ecotourism in the area and there are a ton of boulders (most surrounded by weeds, no trails) but I've been putting up some pretty cool problems on the accessible stuff. I will post pictures on the website soon.

The capital is unfortunately a ways off, if you're ever in Xela let me know and we could rope up and do Cerro Quemado

The Confede guys are great people. The first time I tried to climb in Amatitlan was with them.

Xtreme Gym is another place with great people too.

The pictures I talked about are already available. Point your browser to:

http://www.rockclimbing.com/routes/listArea.php?AreaID=3788

and

http://www.rockclimbing.com/routes/listArea.php?AreaID=3789

Or look in Guatemala category. These are the only photos on this website about climbing in Guatemala.

None of the places (in the pictures) have benn climbed, there are no routes.
