Looking for Guide or Outing Company in DR - Las Galleras  (North_America: Dominican_Republic)

I am going to be in the DR over Xmas and New Years this year (24 Dec - 8 Jan). I am going to be in the Las Galleras area and would like to do some climbing. I have seen there is quite a bit of climbing in this area.

I am a moderately crappy climber that has not climbed much for the last few years. I will have a couple other people with me as well. At this point and after the last few years of sludgery we are really just top rope numbies.

Is there any guides or companies that run climbing excursions in this area? I am not looking for much, just someone who can show us the areas and help setup the ropes. If they have equipment that is good, but I could bring my own as well. I would like to climb a number of times, ideally every second day or so.

I would appreciate any information or anyone who is interested in doing this. I fully realize there will be costs associated with this and I am not looking for a free ride.

Hi Ian,

all the local climbers in Domincian Republic are located in Santo Domingo city, also I don't know any Guide Company here in the island. I can give you all information you need, but will be easier for you if you can bring your oun equipemet, if not possible we can try to get you some here.

One more thing, will be better for you to go top roping, All fronton's routes are in front of sea so bolts ans hangers become unsafety most of the time and....... for Xmas and your vacations will be better that way.

if yoy need more info or RD climbing topo maps and contacts just let me know whermon@hotmail.com

Wladir.

If you dont mind I will send you a message for route info etc... Also, do you have any info on deep water solo climbing in the area? Los Haitises National Park looks amazing for it..
