Without a doubt the best climbing on Okinawa. It has a wide range of climbing from 5.8 to 5.13. No matter if you like small sloping crimpers or lage pumpy jugs, this place has it.

Getting There 

  • Using 58 (free -- takes longer): Take 58 North towards Nago. Follow directions below starting at ^.

  • Using the Expressway (fastest way -- 700 yen both ways): From Kadena take the Expressway north towards Nago all the way to the last exit (exit10).

  • ^From there take 58 north until you hit 449 and take a left towards Ocean Expo. Follow 449 past Family Mart on the left and over a small bridge; ocean should be on your left.

  • Turn right at a sign that says Katsuyama this way. On the corner you will see a building that has "Bridgestone" painted on it. Follow that road; do not turn off of it. It will wind to the right and you will see a small log shack on the right; park there.
