The project

The Auyantepui seen from Uruyen

During the Project “Alpinist 2010-2013” by the Alpine Club South Tyrol a group of young alpinist climbed a few new routes on the Auyantepuy. This tepui plateau, located in the Gran Sabana of Venezuela is quite difficult to reach but offers high quality climbing possibilities. During the February of 2012 the team of the Alpine Club opened together with Helmut Gargitter, Ivan Calderon and Bernd Arnold some twenty routes between one and five pitches, ranging between the difficulties 5c and 7c. The routes are all located around the Camp el Oso, on the plateau of the Auyantepui.
