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.

Spectacular climbing. Start with a crack and mantle up to get into a cave, then pull a roof and get onto a long and sustained face climb with quite a bit of overhang. The climbing gets easier as you go up but there is a second mantle before the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
