Cabo offers very little rock-climbing, but here's an exception. This extraordinary, undeveloped set of beachside bouldering bluffs is located just southwest of Playa Acapulquito, a.k.a. Old Man's, one of the most inviting surf beaches in Baja.
From San Jose del Cabo, head south on Route 1. Just after Lookout Point, at around KM 28, look for a pullout on your left. Park in the small, free lot just outside the entrance for the Cabo Surf Hotel. (It's a great hotel, by the way. If you're a guest there or you join them for a meal, they'll let you park in the lot inside the gates.) Walk down the stairs, through a tunnel and out a wash to the playa. Turn right and head south along the beach for two or three minutes and you'll reach the bluffs.

As the entire base of this climb is recessed, you'll have to hunt around creatively for footholds—and throw a few heel hooks when working past a deep cave section. Turn upwards once you spot the distinct V above your head....[more] Browse More Classics in International
