Description:

Starts on a pinnacle of rock to the left of the area you climb off the boat. Three nice pitches, harder as they go....

P1 = 6B (5.10c)
P2 = 6B+ (5.10d)
P3 = 6C (5.11a)

The rappell is tricky as its overhanging. You have to clip in a few times on your way down, or your hanging in mid air, 100 feet off the deck. Two 60M ropes allow you to rap from anchor 3 to anchor 1, then into the boat. You could do it with one rope, but it would be tricky. One rope will get wet!

4 out of 5 stars -

Had a boat taxi drop us off and then had to waive one down to pick us up. Really fun experience.

5 out of 5 stars sweaty

We had fun but it was a tad sweaty due to the previous night's storm. Bring water. Great moves and well protected with new glue ins.

Great route. Went on a kayak..... If you do the same try to finish while the tide is high or you'll have an epic :o)
