I think I'm moving to jamaica for a couple of years starting in fall. I would like to climb as much as possible while I'm there, and I've found this bouldering video from jamaica.

Does anyone know where on the island this is?

Sorry to disappoint you but this is not Jamaica…at least not the island in the Caribbean. Spent some time there, the vegetation is not typical of Jamaica and it never gets cool enough to require wearing long sleeves…particularly while climbing. There is some rock there but may be difficult to get to. There is climbing on some of the other islands in the area.

Yep, that was Jamaica, Vermont according to the messages on Youtube. Well, any luck finding some climbing spots in the island of Jamaica? Anyone? If there is caving, does that mean there is rock climbing?

You'll have to build a bouldering wall. Or take up scuba.
There's a touristy waterfall on the north shore, forget the name, but they take a conga-line up it where everyone holds hands, easy fourth class mostly but you can break out of the switchbacks and scramble up it for a quick fix.

I hear there are routes in negril that are nice. There are supposedly nice spots on some of the remote islands.
