Valle Cochamo

In Anfiteatro.

The next couple of days were rainy. We were itching to get another route in before our Cochamo time ended. When the rain finally started to subside, we packed up and hiked to the Anfiteatro (2+ hours). There we met a group of friendly American climbers (with an enviable ticklist under their belts) and got some beta for our route of choice…the guys were also willing to loan us an extra .75 cam that apparently would be very good to have. We never got the chance to take them up on the generous offer as a storm moved in that evening and lasted a good part of the night. The morning showed the lines dripping with water. As this was our last day in Cochamo, we packed up and hiked back down to our base camp.

Nothing like sitting out a storm in body bags…I mean bivy sacks. Click photo for a short video.

Yard sale – drying out the junk on the valley floor & waiting in line for a shower. On the upside, the teenaged girls quite often would leave their shampoo bottles behind and we were running very short on ours… (Feb. 2015).
