Does anyone have any advice for climbing in the Dominican Republic? We will be in Puerto Plata but are thinking of driving over to Samana and Playa Fronton. The sport routes there posted on RC.com sound great, but I read that someone was hurt there not too long ago when a bolt came out, so I was thinking of maybe just trying to toprope some stuff instead.

Any info appreciated!

Thanks,
Mike

Will you have those bolts redone by late May 2010? Thanks.

Hi Wladir,

Thanks for all your offers to help! I went there in May 09, and got help from the folks (I think you too) on the yahoo group dominicanclimbers. I would recommend anyone that is going there get in touch with the folks on that group, they are super nice and helpful.

Luckily I was fine climbing there and it was beautiful. Definitely deserves the name el paradiso!

I hope to get back sometime.

Cheers,
Mike

Is there a website with climbing spots in the Dominican Republic? I`m a newbie, would love to get into it because I just moved to the North coast of the island.
Cool
