Description 

The Virgin area has many fun deep water soloing routes with safe falls into turquoise blue water with grades from 5.8 to 5.12. There's a convenient platform of rock on the left-hand (with your back to the sea) for keeping gear and taking pictures.


Getting There 

When the road ends, continue to walk straight until you arrive at a beautiful view of the cove. Hug the water to your left and continue to walk until the brush and trees give way to barren rock. Cross the peninsula here and you will arrive at the Virgin area.

This is not a top rope route, although the motivated coward could probably set one up. There is no deep water solo (DWS) option so I selected top rope. Start 5 feet to the right of the cave. Ascend straight up the whitish rock and through the bulge to the top out (the included photo illustrates the route best).Listed as 6a under the French system with a safety rating of S0....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
