Does anyone know of any outfit or guide for rock climbing in St. Lucia? I see lots of information on climbing the two main peaks there, but as in walking in a trail, not actual rock climbing.

I've hiked Gros Piton (larger of the 2), didn't see much opportunity for climbing on it. Petite Piton it think there was much more options for climbing. Unfortunately, I don't know of any guide services (they will try to make you hire a guide to hike Gros piton, don't do it).

Thanks, yeah looks like actual rock climbing is non-existent here. But I tell you this, I've spent the last hour on google earth (and the pics posted by travelers, see the one I attached) and this island looks like it could be a DWS gold mine. Infrastructure and roads to the rural coast line in general look to be, however, rather undeveloped, so accessibility without a boat would be difficult at best. Might be a good exploration trip though.

Here's another pic I found, by a beach call Louvet. Check that center island with the natural roof.....wonder if it's doable. And not to mention that huge cliff on the right hand side, on the main land....oh well, I'm sure it has potential, but that's all it will be...

Its a beautiful country. The roads are narrow, and very steep hills, drivers are a bit scary in general. Deep Water Soloing would be super fun. Here's a pic of Petite Piton from our balcony.

I bet even getting to some large unbroken faces, should they exist, would include an immense amount of bushwhacking.
