Includes both US and British Virgin Islands. Aside from the stellar granite boulders of the Baths, little exploration has been done involving the vast deepwater soloing and trad-climbing options around the islands. Almost all areas are accessed via boat, with only a few exceptions. Rock type varies from black basalt (???) to white granite (highest quartz content I have ever seen). Quality varies from place to place.
A couple of friends and I are the only climbers I know exploring the area. I have never established routes before so please give any input you have. Also, if you ever get on any of our climbs please feel free to comment on the ratings. I haven't been climbing all that long!
Fly to St. Thomas or Tortola. Travel between the islands by personal boat or ferry, and access crags via boat.
