About Roca Oceanica:

This is a middle sized protrusion of rock from the coast, it's a mix of different rocks of volcanic origin, there are many bouldering faces of varying numbers of moves. it's mostly cream colored granite. 3 routes are equipped on the black wall area and there are maybe 5 more routes that could be set up (all short), the salt air does corrode the bolts however and such protection is temporary at best. some potential for free climbing. Just enough variety to keep one busy for a couple of days. Expect an audience as well since it is a popular tourist attraction.

Arrival Elevation: Sea level.

Area Resources: there is a small post with a guy that sells some food and bottled water and drinks, he charges quite a bit so try and bring your own stuff, you´ll be too far away from anything else to buy.
