Virgin Islands

 

Located in the Eastern Caribbean, the Virgin Islands are gaining traction as a world-class bouldering destination.

 

Pristine shorelines, dotted with towering, granitic outcroppings, render surreal beachscapes long admired by visitors and occasionally scrambled by the accidental climber. 

 

Recently, the area's popularity with boulderer's has been on the rise since release of the climbing films Unreal and Paradise Bouldering. Since then, publication of a new guidebook featuring hundreds of lines leaves no doubt that the V.I. is home to a uniquely tropical bouldering experience. 

 

While the island chain consists of U.S. and British territories, the best bouldering is found on the British islands of  Virgin Gorda and Fallen Jerusalem.
