Climbing in Monagas

We planned to meet Jorge (a climber whom we met at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky) later in the day to climb in the afternoon, so the morning was more meandering through old town.

We found a lovely breakfast spot at Cafe Fortaleza.

When was the last time you saw one of these?!

The pictures don’t do it justice, the climbing was phenomenal. The limestone was pristine and unpolished. 

We hiked out in the pitch black, only Jorge had a headlamp. You could hear frogs jumping out of our way since it was pretty wet and muddy.

After climbing beer at a local bar.
