Description [Suggest Change]
This 250' cliff is obvious nearby the historic bridge at Mata de Platano on the north side of the city of Ciales and the very visible large white rock a half mile to the north of Caliche Crag. Shady until 3pm in the afternoon, this is the most outrageous crag yet developed on the island with big, steep lines that will leave you pumped and anaerobic. The wall is steep enough with roofs on top that the rock does not get wet in the biggest storms. In the shade with breezes and temps year-round in the 80'sF, this area is good to climb on every day of the year, there is no "off-season".
Getting There [Suggest Change]
The bridge is still under (re)construction and so park between the Chinchorro (bar/restaurant) and the bridge, find the path down to the river opposite the car park, cross the river (usually knee to waist deep) and walk upstream for 60m to reach the trail through the sugar cane to the base of the wall. Total driving town from Ciales city is two minutes and approach time about 10-15 minutes in a few hundred yards.
