Eric Coffman leading "Djols" 5.10d Cantabaco
The Visayas is one of the three principal geographical divisions of the Philippines, along with Mindanao and Luzon. It consists of several islands, primarily surrounding the Visayan Sea. The major islands of the Visayas are Panay, Negros, Cebu, Bohol, Leyte, and Samar.
The premiere climbing destination in the Philippines is located in here on the island of Cebu. Right in the middle of the small barangay of Cantabaco, a one hour journey through the jungle and into the islandís heart. The streaked limestone cliff stands over the small community. In a nutshell, this crag should be the first destination in the Philippines if you want a sampling of what climbing in the Philippines can offer.
Domestic flights with the Philippines are easy to book via several low cost carriers. Check out Cebu Pacific, Zest Air, SEAIR-South East Asian Airlines, Tiger Airways, Air Phil Express, etc. Be warned that excess baggage fees can be quite expensive.

bouldery start off the deck to the first bolt where the real business begins. 2 finger crimps for both hands with no feet up to a jug for the next clip. An awkward mantel takes you to a bulging overhang this is where the climb goes supercool. large holds and body position allow you to surmount the overhang. From here it is climbing disco with large holds/poor feet/good feet wierd holds alternating as you go up and left. Fantastic exposure and amazing body movement make this a classic route!!...[more] Browse More Classics in International
