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. All routes have Titanium bolts. The wall is in the shade all day.

Please ask permission (always granted) before passing through the DixonÂ’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 because the wall reflects your voice to the primary school across the road!

Getting There 

On the North Road, drive 2.1 miles (3.4 km) east past La Esperanza. Look for the "Creek and Spot Bay Junior School" and park in the lot. Looking at the cliff from the school you can see 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.

Climb pockets and tufas, past a powerful lower crux, to where you can stem the stalactite and get a no-hands rest. Carpe the stalactite, step over onto it, and climb it on the outside. Cop a rest at the mini-cave (left knee pad) and then punch it for the anchors over steep pockets and tufas, with the main crux right before the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

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