Sector Paraiso

Sector Paraiso

Sector Paraiso is a popular climbing area at Playa Fronton set on a vertical wall of high-quality streaked limestone just behind the beach. This face is set back behind the two prominent house-sized boulders on the beach (called the Pie de la Piedra Partida boulders), and also has a distinct large arch-shaped cave on the left side making the area easy to identify from the beach. There are about 12 established routes here up to 30 meters tall ranging from 5.7 to 5.12. Bring at least a 60m rope and 14 quickdraws for the longer routes. This area contains perhaps some of the highest quality moderate climbing in the Caribbean. Don't forget to look back to take in the view at the top of the climbs!

As of 2016, a new standard of hardware using only titanium glue-in bolts and anchors has been established for all new route development into the future. NOTE: educate yourself about the dangers of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) with respect to stainless steel hardware. ONLY titanium glue-in bolts should be trusted!

Helmets are advised for climbers and belayers.

Although seldom encountered, watch out for wasps and poisonous centipedes.
