Rock Climbing in Puerto Rico: Craig Luebben

World renowned author and climber Craig Luebben was recently pulling down in the pearl of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico. Luebben visited our little slice of paradise upon the invitation of noteworthy local climbers Rossano Boscarino and Edda Rodriguez.

Luebben has approximately 25 years experience in rock and ice climbing, he’s a senior contributing editor at Climbing Magazine, and has written 9 books on the subject (two of which are still in progress) including: Advanced Rock Climbing, How to Ice climb, and How to Rappel. On a more local scale Luebben can already lay claim to 8 first ascents in Puerto Rico and Mona Island (routes which fluctuate between 5.9 and 5.12.)

Upon arriving on the island this trio went on a tour of the Islands more established climbing areas, including Bayamón II and the newly formed multi-pitch routes in San Germán. Visits which apparently left Mr.Luebben with a very favorable opinion of the local climbing scene.

Luebben is renowned as a rock god to many a climber, a reputation forged by the miles and miles of rock upon which the man has pulled down. Feel free to visit his website, for additional information about the man, or if you simply wish to hire an A class guide.

Climb on!
