Part one of "Climbing Puerto Rico" takes you from snowy Boston, MA to the sunny beaches of Puerto Rico. The Larson brothers (Zach and Josh) team up with the locals that have put years of work into exploring, bolting, cleaning and developing climbing on the island. Enjoy the landscapes, climbing, shenanigans and passion from this crew while you're toured through just a small fraction of the climbing, in beautiful Puerto Rico.

This video is mostly of the newer climbs we developed in the Fall of 2015. The locals were busy since our last visit in the Spring and more and more sectors, jungles and beachside's are being discovered with climbing potential. Take a quick 5min look at what you could be climbing on one day.
