The island nation of Cuba is a subtropical climbing paradise and this is the definitive guide. The Valle de Vinales - named a World Heritage Site for its natural beauty - serves as an ideal base for exploring the vast collection of tufa-riddled walls and caves nestled in the surrounding countryside. Come to climb, but enjoy the wonderfully unique Cuban culture during your visit. Friendly locals, pristine beaches, frosty mojitos and Cuban cigars await the adventurous traveller in this Caribbean paradise, arguably the best limestone sport climbing in the Americas.
This guidebook is a first of its kind. It is much more than merely descriptions of routes and approaches. It reflects this history of commitment and devotion. Its authors, Anibal Fernandez and Armando Menocal, are the first Cuban climbers and the first foreigners, albeit a Cuban-American, to discover Cuba's climbing potential. And unlike other guides, the book includes personal essays with intimate perspectives on their Cuban experience by some of climbing's best writers.
Cuba Climbing contains an extensive logistical section for travelling climbers. It outlines all aspects of the trip and should provide a complete reference for planning to visit.
