Island in the Sky Rock Climbing
|Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>|
This small wall is located to the south and slightly uphill of The Zip, between that wall and Car Jack crag. Easily recognizable by the long corner with the #3/#4 camalot twin crack start (Fissureman's Friend) and a short, left leaning off fingers crack to ring bolt anchor followed by bolted sport pitch. Seems like a less traveled crag that could offer some solitude on busy days in the Bluffs.
If walking the gravel path from the parking lot to the Zip (walk out the parking lot to the road, past the company then left onto the path, heading south) take the left past the Zip and head uphill following the path to the first wall. Alternatively, you can get here from above by going downhill on a small path below Burgers and Fries and then North past High Cliff and Car Jack Crag.

A two pitch route with the first pitch being a short (50 foot) left angling off fingers splitter to a bomber ring bolt anchor. This pitch, although short, is a really awesome crack (although more like 5.9 than the 10b that the book gives it).I didn't do the second pitch but from the ring bolt anchor, you would continue up the low angle slab past bolts (maybe this would have been the 5.10 part?)...[more] Browse More Classics in International
