Spelunkers and rock wall climbers has now available place to explore in Quezon and it is in  Barangay San Jose where Lime Rock Walls, Caves and the said Blue Water were located.
According to one of businessmen in Maramag, Bukidnon, who also have a business establishment in Quezon, that this rock wall has been already investigated or inspected by the then Congressman now Senator Migz Zubiri, together with the local officials of Quezon and possibly be a potential tourist spot in this area--- like a high elevation dual zipline where you can see the raging water down below.
Zipline can be installed at wall to wall concept on this lime rock wall or white rock wall. How to do it? This will be the LGU's challenge on how to do it in order to promote the tourism in this area.

The above photo's subject where the blue water is located. It is down below the white rock wall (with boulders as shown in the photo), can hardly be seen in the photo, but can be seen in actual at 100 meters distance (standpoint at the bridge).
At a closer look of this rock wall, it seems like a defense wall of Japanese during World War II and would be the possible landing deck of would-be installed dual zip line in this spot, just in case the LGU had a plan to develop this area. It can also be noted that this barangay is very rich in limestone deposit.
