Starting up one of the routes on Dixon's Wall. I'm...


We found this area to have the highest quality stone, and the best routes on the island. The limestone is complete with pockets, immaculate flowstone and curtains, and an upper stalactite band. All routes have Titanium bolts. The wall is in the shade all day.

Please ask permission (always granted) before passing through the Dixon’s property. They were very friendly when we were there in March of 2009. We chatted and learned we were perhaps the first climbers that had been back to the island since Hurricane Gustav wreaked havoc on the island in August of 2008.

It is also suggested that if it's not your day, to watch your language because the wall reflects your voice to the primary school across the road!

Getting There 

On the North Road, drive 2.1 miles (3.4 km) east past La Esperanza. Look for the "Creek and Spot Bay Junior School" and park in the lot. Looking at the cliff from the school you can see where you are going: a beautiful white wall with a large stalactite band hanging from the top. The Dixon's home is green and white with a white picket fence. The house belongs to Mr. Hindenberg "Berg" Dixon and the house to the east belongs to his son, Mr. Peter Dixon. You may knock on either door to request permission to climb.

Before Kirk's was put up, this is the easiest route on the crag, and was the usual "warm-up". I found it much easier the second time around, after knowing the sequence. A tricky move off the ground will get you to good holds that help you through a small roof. After passing the fourth bolt some went to the left while others went directly above the bolt. You get a nice rest just before the overhung stalactite band, use it while you decipher the sequence of moves above. Exciting pulling o...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Can seep and drip for long periods of time if you come shortly after a rainy season.
