Mostly known for its beaches, coral reefs and underwater activities, Belize also offers some climbing. Most of it on tufa rich limestone in jungle settings and caves.

Barton Creek Cave

This cliff is located at Mike & Sucely Bogaert's farm next to the popular cave. The climbing is on white, nicely featured limestone with tufas. There is also some DWS next to the cave entrance.

WARNING: it seems that this crag hasn't been maintained for at least a decade. Climbing here is not safe. "Club Aruba Active," the organization in charge of maintenance, was closed in 2000.

To climb in this area you'll need extra material such as slings and carabiners to create solid relais points. Without this equipment the tophooks are useless! If you don't have the required material with you, contact C.A.A. for rental. The use of magnesium is permitted, but seldom necessary. Climbing without guidance by C.A.A. members is at your own risk. We completely disapprove of solo climbing, as it gives sportclimbing a bad name and might crack your skull. Just don't do it. The rocks of the "Tears Sector" are well shaded from 10 AM, because of their overhanging nature. The other sectors are shaded from about 1:30 PM.

Aruba consists of volcanic rock on which several layers of coral were deposited by oceanic micro-organisms. The cliffs of Grapefield (also known as the cliffs of the Fontein Coast) are a remnant of these prehistoric reefs. It's from this origin that the rocks derive their unique characteristics. As the original sharpness of the reefs has mostly eroded away, the cliffs are now perfectly suitable for climbing.

Terasse is the sector where the rocks form of two different levels. To the left a walking route is marked, where it is possible to ascent and reach the top of the rocks where the tophooks are situated.

6b Tears for Fears

Grapefield klassieker, fraaie lijn met gaten en colonettes. Markeert de grens tussen linker en rechter deel sector.

A classic, which features overhanging terrain with good grips. Follow the "tears" and the bolts. As they say in Dutch: the venom is in the tail! The bolts on top are not easy to reach when climbing on the lead. Toproping is possible, but the edge is very sharp, which makes it an obstacle of some weight.

Vorige topo "Caja Betico Croes", hernoemd. Fysieke overhangende passen, op 1/3 deel goede rustpositie in te nemen.

A traverse from below Warawara Dream to the start of Tears for Fears. Loads of pitch. Very physical with a lot of overhanging terrain. Excellent training route!
