Rock Islands, Palau.


Located about 500 miles East of the Phillipines in the South Pacific. Looks like paradise. Limestone dropping into the ocean dramatically. Very few people, very many rocks.

Has anyone climbed in Palau? Are there any substantial crags?

What you see in the pictures is probably what you'll get there...likely some sick deep water soloing opps on the limestone islands! I highly doubt there's any developed climbing crags.

Also, this area can be moved to the Oceania -> Micronesia destination now. Just a thought.

Not sure there is any climbing here. Maybe some bouldering. There is plenty to do on a rest day. I added some photos from a trip a few years back. Also, this area could be added to Micronesia.
