DescriptionA classic climbing area in Yogyakarta developed during the 80's, Parang Ndog is located in the south, near Parangtritis beach. To enter the area you need to pay the entrance fee for Parangtritis beach and parking fee near the area.
The wall is facing west with some spots to hide from the sun in the afternoon. During the rainy season vegetation sometimes covering the trail (and routes).
The rock type is limestone with different quality, loose rock when you go further inside the area. Since it's near the ocean, bolts in this area have corrosion. Some of them are heavily corroded. ALWAYS check the bolts condition before you climb.
Routes in this area are not equipped with two-bolts anchor. Most people do down-climbing to clean a route.
