Be forewarned that this crag is on Mike's private property.

The approach is a long one. The road leading to mikes place more or less dead ends at his property, so hitch hiking is not really an option.

If you go by car, you would be advised to take a 4wd high clearance vehicle as the road is unpaved and involves a river crossing.

To get there we caught a ride with some dutch and british soldiers in their military vehicle, then walked, crossing a rope suspension bridge across a river, then hitched a ride with a mennonite buggy, and then walked again. It's a trek.

Meeting mennonites in the area was the most interesting part of the experience for me. We went there in December, which is the end of the rainy season and start of the 'dry', and the rock was still wet everywhere. I'm not sure when it dries up but there could be some fun climbing here. Big ups to Mitch for working on developing climbing in Belize.
