Great view but a little chossy. The exciting/challenging thing about climbing in Barbados is the uncertainty of the holds, and this route is a good example of this. During the climb, stay on the northwest face as much as possible to avoid the white chalky holds. The ironstone was solid. I found the crux was mid-way up, at the roof of an offwidth.


This route is located on the north face of the sleeping giant's nose. It's nearby Barclay's park. You'll see it from the road.

Lots of webbing to set the anchor to prevent rope drag. Use two ropes or setup a belay station near the top.
