Description:

Sharp 15 ft traverse around left side of the arete opposite Cosmos and then up following the obvious bolt line. Photo (pg 140) of Chandler Orton on the traverse helped with the start. Look closely and you'll see the first two bolt locations that protect the traverse.

Descent Options:

200 ft rappel down North side using outer Limits top anchors, 200 ft rappel to ground using anchors ontop Through the Lookingglass, or 30 ft rappel to base of Cosmos.

5 out of 5 stars Short stuff

I don't live in the area anymore but have spoken to people since climbing at the Cally's and they dogged on Fantasy Island. I know the routes are short, but some of the best climbs can be shorties. John Long just did a funny article about cool short summits in SoCal.
