Description

Located 50 miles east of Nassau (Providence Island), Eleuthera isn't really a tourist destination. On the flip side, with at least 10 miles of climbable cliff line, it's got a world of potential on the sharp, craggy, limestone cliffs over the Atlantic and the Caribbean. There are scattered boulders both along the beach and on the "mainland" as well.A note about rock texture: the rock can be extremely sharp and/or brittle in places.  Most vertical and overhanging faces are great texture for climbing, with the exception of rock right at the waterline - it can be sharp.  Ledgey areas and the tops of cliffs are EXTREMELY sharp.  Generally rock that looks very white is no good and extremely brittle.  Look for the good orange stuff!After spending a lot of time here (8 different visits), I think I can say this could be an excellent place to go. I don't imagine it to be the next Mallorca or Thailand but I do imagine it to be an awesome island with hospitable locals (we hitchhiked the whole time we were there), good pineapple and warm water year round.I just found this after our trip. Looks like someone has been there climbing before, which is pretty awesome. Check the link out below:highexposures.com/blog/2014…

Getting There

Check for flights into Governor's Harbor (GHB) or North Eleuthera (ELH).  There are large and small carriers that fly into both airports.  The majority of the climbing(and surfing) is concentrated around Gregory Town.  Reaching the various cliffs ranges from easy to difficult.  Some can be accessed by land, many can be accessed by kayak (available for rent from a few spots), or you can hire a boat.  Weather, specifically wind and waves, will play a huge role in whats climbable.   The Atlantic side gets morning sun, the sound side gets afternoon sun.
