Climbing in Cuba is Alive and Well MORE INFO >>>


This is a world class cave climb. Creative and powerful climbing on mostly big holds. It´s so steep that you have to top rope it or downclimb it to clean your draws. Be especially careful on top rope because it´s possible to hit a boulder. It´s a very safe lead but make sure your belayer is paying attention. You can usually get one of the locals to clean your draws, and put them on for you, because they train on this climb constantly. They call it ´la puta del barrio.´ Super duper sick!!


Starts on the right side of the cave, traverses the roof, and then exits above the cave entrance.


10 bolts.
