We crossed back into Chile a few days ago. I think it’s like our 4th or 5th time crossing into this country in the last year. It’s our toughest border, and I hate it. So many rules in Chile.
We’ve got it pretty dialed at this point, and we sailed right through despite getting the full pat down. They even looked in the rocket box this time. This has only happened twice in 4 years and 16 countries. The other time was also Chile.
Anyway, we worked our way north toward a relatively unknown climbing area called Valle de Los Condores. We’ve been hearing about it for several months and thought we’d better check it out. The reports of amazing beauty were not understated.
The climbing, however, was not for us. To reach the main section we would have needed to shimmy across the outside rails of a closed off bridge suspended above a class 5 whitewater rapid. Doing it alone would have been sketch, but doable. Doing it with a baby on my back… not an option.
Oh well, not every place is Sprinter Life friendly. We decided to just enjoy the camping and then move on. It certainly was a beautiful spot.
We’ve got about 2 more weeks until we fly to Mexico. We decided to head to Pichilemu, Chile’s best surf break, and check out the waves. A little beach time sounds perfect right about now.
We arrived this afternoon and rented a nice little bungalow right on the beach in front of the left point break. Settling in and liking the vibe!
