Description

Many parts of this area are shady all day long, some are even in cave-like areas. When I was there it wasn’t very crowded – only saw one other couple climbing all day. Sometimes people walk up from the park to look around, but just spectators.

The rock is nice. A mix of english-muffin cragginess and smooth candle-dripping laybacks. One of the climbers that gave us beta at the Aventuras Tierra Adentro said it was similar to Red Rocks, but I haven't climbed there so I can’t compare.

Getting There

There’s a parking lot about a 10-minute walk from the crags. The guidebook available free from Aventuras Tierra Adentro has driving directions.

My wife and I just took a nice little trip to Puerto Rico in March and I called Aventuras Tierra Adentro before I went. They already had plans to climb at Nuevo Bayamon (Bayamon 2) on the day I mentioned so they were super nice and invited us along since we didn't really need the whole guide thing.

Rossano and Edda have done a lot of work developing the sport climbing at Bayamon 2. The approach is physically easy but finding the areas would take more time without a local. There are a few signs with a carabiner logo on them to point the way. Parque Julio Enrique Monagas is also a mountain biking area, so there are lots of side trails. By the way driving in PR can be tricky, we learned when trying to find the Aventuras climbing shop that you can't really go by street address since their address is found in more than one building on the same major avenue.

There are dozens of nicely bolted climbs, in 9 sectors. Little wooden bridges and stairs leading to some areas. I recommend downloading the PDF guide put together by Aventuras, it is pretty good already and they have plans to update it. It is humid and sweaty there, but lots of shade, and lizards. Rossano Boscarino also has an impressive climbing background, he's done some speed ascents in Yosemite with Hans Florine, and Rossano and Edda obviously love climbing. Bayamon 2 is a great crag and they are trying to promote it to get more traffic, partly to keep the vegetation under control.

I wouldn't really compare it to Red Rocks as mentioned above, since it is drippy crazy looking limestone, instead of the hard sandstone that I think of at Red Rocks. Bring 12-14 draws and enjoy. Apr 10, 2010
I'm visiting in Puerto Rico until May 10 and was wondering if anyone wants to hook up to go out. I'm staying in Ocean Park, email me at bebforman@gmail to make plans. Apr 20, 2011

I put together a little guide from a recent trip to Puerto Rico. Check it out if you are looking for info for planning a trip.

there are tons of routes here and if you go you must visit the climbing store before you go. they had a mini guide book and are working on a new one as I write this. here is the link to the store. hopefully by the time you head over there the new book will be out. Edda and Rosano are the most helpful climbers you will meet. They pretty much maintain the routes up there so they know it all.
