Description 

The Dominican Republic is a nation on the island of Hispaniola, part of the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region. The western third of the island is occupied by the nation of Haiti. By area and population, the Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation (after Cuba), with 48,442 square kilometres (18,704 sq mi) and an estimated 10 million people. The Dominican Republic has the highest peaks of the West Indies and mountains show a direction northwest-southeast. The mountains are separated by valleys with the same general direction. Cordillera Septentrional (in English, "Northern Range"). It runs parallel to the north coast, with extensions to the northwest, the Tortuga Island, and to the southeast, the SamanĂ¡ Peninsula (with its Sierra de SamanĂ¡). Its highest mountain is Diego de Ocampo, close to Santiago, with 1,249 m. The Cibao Valley (Dominican Republic) is the largest and the most important valley of the country. This long valley stretches from North Haiti, where is called Plaine du Nord, to SamanĂ¡ Bay.

There are really good places to rock climb in the Dominican Republic, mostly on limestone. There is a community of climbers, that will happily assist you if you'd like to climb in our Island.

I am headed to the Punta Cana La Romana area in March. I would love to hook up with someone to get some routes or bouldering in while there. I may be brining limited equipment but will definitely have shoes, harness, and chalk on me:)

Our campaign will be live into April, 2016. No donation is too small!

We appreciate your support,
