SURF. CLIMB. EXPLORE.

We are driving to the southern most tip of South America from Canada in our custom built Mitsubishi Delica that we call Peso.   Wandering Peso was born out of our dream to adventure into raw, honest and wild places around the world.  

We have been wandering and exploring this route since June 2018 and we’d love for you to follow along.

La Mojarra: A Climbers Paradise

Time has a way of getting lost at this place.   Waking up to beautiful sunrises over the canyon while eating freshly baked artisan rolls filled with warm dark chocolate. And then go climb your brains out on the hundreds of bolted routes just minutes from your cabin, tent or overland rig.  It’s pretty spectacular.  […]
