About Island Block:

Access is a short overhanging 5.4 solo on the southwestern corner. Not too safe if damp. East face has alot of boulder problems that are sheltered during and immediately after rain, but seep for 2-3 days afterwords. Routes are listed right to left from the NE corner. North and west faces have a variety of routes that are listed starting on the NE corner of the block and move right. Bolt anchors for most routes on top, please use the correct bolts for the anchors. There are ring anchors atop Lean Across for climbing/rapping. If rapping from them merely pull the rope from high up on the ledge system across the chasm to avoid drag.
