Description

A sector you should not miss if you like 5.10s. Imagine climbing hard melted wax, fuel for modern sport climbing. Laybacking and fast reading of chalk marks will help you adapt to its geological challenges.

Limestone rock. Generally shadey and cooler than other climbing areas in Puerto Rico.

60m rope / 15 quick draws

This sector is labeled "Sector 4 - Original" in the Nuevo Bayamón Mini Guide published by Aventuras Tierra Adentro (aventurastierraadentro.net/)

Getting There

The crags are in the park Julio Enrique Monagas in the municipality of Bayamón.

From San Juan get on Highway 22 West. Take exit 10 to Road 5. Stay in the right lane and take the first exit. At the stop sign, make a left to Road 28 (also known as GOYA Road). Cross a traffic light and turn right after the GOYA warehouse. Go straight through the first intersection and the park's gate is immediately on your left.

After the park gate, cross the parking lot and make two rights to a second parking lot between playgrounds and gazebos. Park here.

From the parking lot, hike up the tar road that heads towards the woods.

Take the trail marked with a cairn (a stack of rocks) and a carabiner sign between two bunkers. When you come out into a clearing or open area, keep hiking straight up. After the uphill left bend of the road, you will see two trails on your right side. (5-10 min.)

Take the first trail and hike another 5-10 minutes.
