Description

This is a quiet and isolated limestone crag in the forest with more than 40 established sport routes up to 50 ft long. Less than 2 hours from Santo Domingo or Punta Cana, this is well worth the side trip if you are just visiting the DR and want to explore the country's climbing scene. The approach hike is less than 5 minutes from the access road. The access road is very rocky so a high clearance vehicle is recommended, and parking space near the trail is very limited. You may need to pay a small fee at the entrance gate, or ask for permission to proceed through the gate by car (it is advisable to contact climbingbayahibe@hotmail.com ahead of time to gain permission through the gate). The crag has been developed by a local who lives nearby, and the crag is very clean and well maintained. Most bolts and anchors are stainless steel in excellent condition (as of this post in 2015). There are also many permanent anchors consisting of slung voids. The route names and grades are painted at the start of each route, so no topos are necessary. Route grades range from 5b and to 7b+, with a few ungraded projects at hard end of the scale. In general, climbs here may be perceived as being easier than the given grade (i.e., "vacation grades"). This area contains a wide variety of route character, and the rock quality is variable ranging from pock marked faces of razor sharp finger pockets to smooth limestone with beautiful tufas. The crag is a short drive to the public beach, so bring your swimsuit for a swim after your day of climbing. There are also nearby caves just a short hike away north of the access road worth exploring. Please respect this area by keeping it clean and carrying out all trash.

Climbed there last week. Nice little cliff. 45 meter rope is more than enough to climb and lower off. Beware of bees/wasps. Seems to be quite a few nests on the climbs.

The GPS coordinates aren't correct. This is the real cliff location: 18.36868,-68.82848
Also I recommend parking here: 18.373423, -68.815442
Five minute walk from the cliff and lots of parking available. You can actually see the cliff just barely from the road.

Bring your bathing suit. Worth it to hike to the near by caves for a swim to cool down! GPS: 18.373423, -68.815442

The grades also quite soft at this cliff. 11s feel like 10s... 12s like 11s...

enjoy! And thanks again to the people that bolted this cliff! Jun 2, 2017

The craig is located inside of the Padre Nuestro park/trail area about 2 miles from the small town of Bayahibe. The surrounding areas feel sketchy so keep travel to the daytime. It will cost you 200 pesos to enter the park (they will round to 5 USD). From the entrance walk 1.2 miles. When you approach some dwellings on the right and left, you're very close. The area is on the right and has several paths/entrances that show the way. Look for a big blue colored building on the right that looks like an out-house. There are two cleared walls. Most climbs here are 6-8 quickdraws to the top. The rock quality is solid/excellent, but can be dirty in some pockets due to the nature of the limestone/coral mixture.

Expect to be surrounded by a tropical/jungle environment. Don't be surprised to see termite lines on some areas of the first wall. There are also lizards, wasps (we had a sting while on the wall) a few mosquitos (but not pervasive) and we did see a small snake on approach. Most of this is avoidable on the second (larger) wall with less foliage.

There is also an incredible abundance of butterflies here. If you walk off of the main path you can easily find yourself surrounded by tens of hundreds of large multi-colored butterflies. Very cool feature of this area.

Overall, would recommend. The area has a lot of potential. The guy who lives here and bolted the wall is very nice. Apr 12, 2016
