Spring Bay, Virgin Gorda, BVI

Description 

Includes both US and British Virgin Islands. Aside from the stellar granite boulders of the Baths, little exploration has been done involving the vast deepwater soloing and trad-climbing options around the islands. Almost all areas are accessed via boat, with only a few exceptions. Rock type varies from black basalt (???) to white granite (highest quartz content I have ever seen). Quality varies from place to place.

A couple of friends and I are the only climbers I know exploring the area. I have never established routes before so please give any input you have. Also, if you ever get on any of our climbs please feel free to comment on the ratings. I haven't been climbing all that long!


Getting There 

Fly to St. Thomas or Tortola. Travel between the islands by personal boat or ferry, and access crags via boat.
