About La Palestra:

A dry waterfall which is one of the few places in San Juan that offers good oppurtunities for traditional climbing. The quality of the rock is quite poor in some places though, so be cautious. Bring along some traditional gear anyway, because bolts are sometimes old or have been removed. The site offers a very nice view of the city of San Juan.
