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.

Me on the start of Caldron.  The orange-brown stain on the rock makes a good landmark for identifying the start of the route.

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. This is one of the easiest routes out of the water in the Virgin area. Start 15 feet to the right of the cave. Ascend straight up to the left hand side of the orange-brown stain on the rock. The top out is particularly easy, so falling from height is not particularly a concern. As usual getting out of the water is the crux.Listed as 5 under...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
