Rock climbing as a tool

for change in Venezuela

about us


Tepui Project started in 2014 during a rock climbing expedition to Auyan Tepui, a table-top mountain in Venezuela that is home to the highest waterfall on earth, Angel Falls.

After several days immersed in the local culture and surrounded by the beauty of the great outdoors, the team realized sustainable tourism was the answer to the many problems this region was facing, such as food shortages and  illegal mining. 

As a first step, they decided to continue exploring the area to better understand its tourism potential. They went back to Auyan Tepui, but they also visited Roraima Tepui and Akopan Tepui.

After all those trips, in 2018 Tepui Project evolved to become a platform that not only promotes sustainable tourism, but more broadly promotes climbing as a tool for development.



  • Support the national climbing team

  • Develop a national climbing circuit to incentivize new generations of climbers

  • Position Venezuela as a world-class climbing destination, training indigenous porters so they can become climbing guides, supporting sustainable tourism initiatives in their communities, and creating a repository of information on Venezuelan climbing

  • Organize community climbing days to bring children and youth from communities around our local crags to the sport
