Boulders in Bolivia

Just over the border  between Chile and Bolivia at Ollagüe we started seeing funky sandstone boulders, lots of sandstone boulders. I’m generally a reluctant boulderer, but just the sheer number and awesome formations meant we just hed to stop and play.

 

Given that just walking around leaves you breathless the problems we did were not very hard, but good fun…. Three new boulder problems in Bolivia now.

The boulder field stretched in all directions as far as you could see so I guess there are plenty more possibilities. Although lots of cleaning required for anything hard… the holds can be a bit snappy! Oh and it’s a long way to go for a bit of a boulder.
