When is boulder not a boulder? When a boulder is for a climbing competition. Such was the case today when there was a man-made boulder climbing challenge right in front of Palacio de los Capitanes. There were be 14 competitors from Guatemala, 10 men and 4 women, 8 from El Salvador, 5 from Costa Rica and 2 from Honduras according to Felipe Álvarez, one of the organizers. Among the competitors there were Guatemalan champions Paula Mendez and Diego García, both members of the Asociación de Alpinismo de Sacatepéquez based here in La Antigua Guatemala.
