New multi-pitch routes in Puerto Rico:

Well we have entered a fairly interesting phase in the history of Puerto Rican climbing. Some of the local “rock innovators” have taken it upon themselves to start bolting up some new multi-pitch climbs in the southern crag known as “Rosario”.  Rossano Boscarino alongside Eda Rodriguez have bolted up three solid new projects in the area of the crag known as Vertical Jamming:

Mr. O- Three 5.10 pitches (one 10a pitch followed by two 10d’s, all sport)
Pan con queso- Two 5.10a pitches (Sport)
Obstinada- One 5.10a followed closely by a 5.11a pitch (Sport)

*Special mention goes to the trad route El negro crunch which is just to the right of the other three.  Comprised of three easy pitches (5.9, 5.8,5.10a) with good bolted stations and it takes you right to the top of the cliff face.

Hopefully this is all a sign of things to come.  You can never have too many routes and said routes can never be too tall!  Keep it up guy’s thanks for the great work!!!

  1. It’s been about 7 years since I’ve done any serious climbing; result of a particularly busy period of family and work. I’d like to get back into the rock gym and eventually on some real rock. Your post, a day after I found out there’s a Solid Rock here in PR, is inspirational. Any suggestions on where to start (top rope) would be great. Looking forward to meeting some of you out there on the rock in the future.

  2. In the categories section hit some of the climbing tags (escalada, climbing, rock climbing,etc.) and you’ll find some reviews of a couple of Puerto Rico’s best crags. If you need a partner or just someone to give you the lay of the land feel free to contact me at saber199@yahoo.com. Climb on!!!

  3. multipitch limestone! Yes, I have found a place like home.
