Description

This area consists of a 3.5km-long cliff band that parallels the shoreline and then extends into the water. An isolated, sandy beach at the northeastern tip offers a spot away from the rest of the world. Glue-in anchors provide steep sport lines with a variety of difficulties. The area consists of two distinctly different rock types -- vertical streaked limestone and overhanging black marble -- for different styles of climbing. A combination of tropical climate, rock composition, and seaside elements force climbers to continually inspect and evaluate anchors and new anchor placement. A new standard has been established to mandate that all new route development at Playa Frontón is completed using UIAA-certified titanium glue-in bolts and anchors. Please message Giordanno DPC via Mountain Project for more information about guidelines for new route development. Please respect the area and help keep it clean, via the Leave No Trace policy.

Getting There

Several ways to approach this beach include hiking from Las Galeras, taking a small boat from Las Galeras, or parking at a place called Boca del Diablo (AKA the Blow Hole) and hiking to Frontón. Dirt roads are rough and the single track trail leads through coconut trees. Enjoy the adventure!
