Description 

We found this area to have the highest quality stone, and the best routes on the island. The limestone is complete with pockets, immaculate flowstone and curtains, and an upper stalactite band. There are five routes listed here, though only four have been re-bolted with Titanium bolts (ten (10) routes in 2014). The wall is in the shade all day.

Please ask permission before passing through the Dixon’s property. They were very friendly when we were there in March of 2009. We chatted and learned we were perhaps the first climbers that had been back to the island since Hurricane Gustav wreaked havoc on the island in August of 2008.

It is also suggested that if it's not your day, to watch your language.


Getting There 

On the North Road, drive 2.1 miles (3.4 km) east past La Esperanza. Look for the Spot Bay Primary school to your left and park just west of the school above a white wall that is along the road. Looking at the cliff behind the school you can spot where you are going: a beautiful white wall with a large stalactite band hanging from the top. The Dixon's home is green and white with a white picket fence. The house belongs to Mr. Hindenberg "Berg" Dixon and the house to the east belongs to his son, Mr. Peter Dixon. You may knock on either door to request permission to climb.

Can seep and drip for long periods of time if you come shortly after a rainy season.
