Photographer's Note

Walking towards Acopan Tepuy, one of the many table-top mountains located in Gran Sabana, Venezuela. In the last years, these beautiful mountains have become an attractive destination for climbing, providing tons of unexplored walls in a territory that promises and adventure already on the approach.

During this trip in 2006, we climbed an already established route: Jardineros de Grandes Paredes, 7b, 300 m. To get to the base of Acopan, one must take a small plane from a nearby city, Santa Elena de Uairen, in order to get to Yunek, the closest village. Yunek is inhabitated by native Pemon people. From here, a short day walking leads to the base camp, located somewhere in the jungle, from where the base of the climb can be reached in one or two hours more.
