24 Feb 2018 - 3 March. Mostly diving, but would be down to do a couple days if anyone is available. Staying in Bavaro Beach

I won't be there. However, I'd definitely recommend taking the time to go dive the St. George!

I'll be staying in Samana around those dates, would like to climb at Playa Fronton.

I wouldn't climb at Playa Fronton. Was there 3 years ago and had a bolt snap on me. No one maintains those routes....

Hi Jean

it looks like climbing is not going to happen this trip. Reality has set in. Hope you find a partner.

That's not accurate -- a rebolting campaign has been going on since 2016, with the goal of replacing all existing hardware with titanium. Having said that, only a small percentage of routes have been redone so far (mostly at Fronton main wall). See route guide on MP for more info. Know which routes have been redone and don't trust anything that isn't a Titan Eterna bolt or U-bolt anchor (titanium).

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
