Description 

This part of the Gunko wall is formed by the horizontal basalt columns the curve and form a series of blocks coming out of the wall. This is just like gym climbing.

Getting There 

From Boquete it is less than 10 minutes by taxi and it will cost around 3$.
Once you are done climbing, just walk back towards Boquete for about half a mile and you will easily get a taxi. They drive by all the time.

The name says it all. It follows the black streak for 3/4 of the way. Constant climbing on good holds for the first 2/3 than an easy section leads to the ending. From the last draw to the anchor, I noticed two different ways to do it. I chose to go right because there was a wasp nest on the left. Getting to the anchor was physical and a bit right of the falling line. Be careful!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

I read somewhere that in order to climb here you must hire the service of a guide. FYI, this wall is accessed from the road and locals and visitors alike enjoy it without any restrictions as far as I could see during my visit.
