That's the point of this site anyway. We want to make climbing as fun, accessible and safe as it can be to anyone, a climbing newbie or not! And if you're a first time visitor to our country, we've prepared this write-up of what you can expect if you plan on sampling the rock climbing in our tropical islands.
Tara! (Let's go!)
Climbing in the Philippines will force you to love limestone. Our crags offer a range of types—some young and soft, others old and bullet-hard; some sharp and skin-biting, others smooth and slimy.
To sample the variety, Dingle’s Nautod Wall (Iloilo) has inconspicuous angles that result in unidentifiable shadows, making it easy for the newcomer’s eye to pass off slopers for jugs. Cantabaco (Cebu) is fun for on-sighting with smooth pockets and large cracks pasted over a clean, “highway”-like surface.
