Description

Without a doubt the best climbing on Okinawa. It has a wide range of climbing from 5.8 to 5.13. No matter if you like small sloping crimpers or lage pumpy jugs, this place has it.Weather"It can't rain in every direction"Hiking into lost world after or during rain can be very slippery but the walls tends to stay dry if it has just started raining and has been dry previous day's. But days after heavy rain, the water will seep through the porous limestone.This area tends to take longer to dry compared to zatsun or Cape Hedo
