Rock Climbing Guide CALICHE Ciales, Puerto Rico
Caliche is a limestone rock wall formed by the Río Grande de Manatí. It is located in the Caliche neighbourhood in the town of Ciales, about one hour west of San Juan (72km). It was the first climbing area developed in Puerto Rico. La Grieta (5.10c) was the first route put up in 1989 in the old fashion way with cams and nuts from the bottom up. Today, all of the routes are sport and many have been recently re-bolted.
