This area is in the southern part of the Island.
There are a ton of climbs at all grades along a gorge, divided into several sectors.

The rock is a nice red basalt that is generally very solid. Most routes are well bolted.

You can find climbs in the shade, or the sun, all day long.

Getting There 

From the parking lot it (see Lon/Lat below) is about a 5 to 10 min walk into the gorge.

A classic route. Climb up a rope ladder to get on the climb. This route is seriously overhung but has very positive holds. It's all about efficiency of movement and body positioning. There is the occasional rest. Once you get past the overhang there is a second crux just before the last bolt before the anchors. This involves a delicate high step move using an evil crimp. It is better to go slightly above the bolt before clipping. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
