PORTO COLOM


Hidden away underneath the Porto Colom lighthouse is this exciting venue, which is more suited to the roof-hungry boulderer who fancies a bit of deep water solo action. The classics of the crag are Princess of Transilvania (7a) and I Live in a Cave (6b+). The lines on the lower section are short and relatively safe but the longer routes which top out are quite committing and generally don't see many ascents. Retreat is usually by jump, or reversing I Live in a Cave. To the right side of the crag is a large platform where you can stow gear and hang out. It is also one of the few soloing venues were you can easily spectate without having to actually climb. Close by is the Dominion Wall which has huge potential but only limited development at present.
