The gigantic Huallay Stone Forest, in Pasco department, has almost 6,815 hectares of incredible rock formations and volcanic rock cliffs, where climbers can put all their techniques to the test in their ascent to the summit.
Besides stamina and ability, climbers need to have participated in an acclimatisation process that allows them to cope at 4,000 metres above sea level. The site is located in the heart of the Andean plateau, 350 kilometres east of Lima and close to the city of Cerro de Pasco.
