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