Description

High quality rock in a beautiful setting, mostly steep to very steep climbing, mostly sport and some trad.

Access issues inherited from Japan

Some spots have access issues as many spots near crowded places elsewhere. So please ensure you follow the recommendations of local climbers and behave responsibly.

Approach

Follow the path from Yawatano Fishing Port towards Izu Shiki-no-Hana Park for a few hundred meters. You will see a small path going down across the barrier to an abseil-anchor. Rappell down and take a left when facing the sea - you can't miss it.

Ethic inherited from Japan

There`s not a lot of information about climbing in Japan in English. Much of the information is only available in Japanese - or of course here on theCrag!

The Japan Free Climbing Association (http://freeclimb.jp/seibi/seibi.htm) is a good point of contact and there is a set of 5 guidebooks (all in Japanese) and an alpine guide book in English available covering all of Japan and its thousands of sport and trad routes and boulders.
