Spring Bay Crack

V1, Boulder, 20 ft (6 m),  Avg: 3.8 from 23 votes
FA: unknown
International > N America > Virgin Islands > Virgin Gorda, BVI > Spring Bay > Spring Bay Boulder

Description

Perfect hand crack that is going to feel V1 if your tall and have experience with cracks. Great hand jams and feet. Nice sand landing most don't use a pad but this is a fairly high problem at 20+ feet. The first problem you encounter once you enter onto the beach from the Spring Bay trail and parking lot by Guavaberry Springs.

Location

Biggest boulder in town

Protection

pad would be helpful, if you can hit it from that high up

If you are a woman, or have small hands, it's not a perfect hand crack. Mar 3, 2013

[Hide Comment] There's really no point on this climb where you actually have to jam, but it's an excellent climb nonetheless. V0+ in the guide, and that's what it feels like. May 4, 2016
