From the low start.

Description 

Start in the big hole, the same as for "Tropical Sea."

Once you pass the hole, move right and face the insecure finish on really bad holds!!

This one is all about foot work. This is a fun line that is worth a visit.


Location 

This is located on the south side of Gilligan's Island. It's a wall the is on the western side of the southern tip of the Island.

When you arrive at the Island and the trail splits for a loop head west (left) as if going to the "Three Hour Tour" block. Once you reach the "Three Hour Tour" boulder, go uphill directly behind the block. You will see a just under vertical wall with a big hole right in the middle.


Protection 

Pads and spotter.

One of the better easy warm-ups in Gilligan's in my opinion. Good landing and some fun moves makes it a great first stop and a good place for beginners.

There is also a sit-start variation to the problem that adds some reach and more difficulty to the problem. Sit right above the small cave/hole in the ground. Holds should be obvious, just awkward with your feet. Can link into both Low Tide and into the Tropical Sea climbs.

Took me a few times to get the balance of the SDS start right. Top out is trickier than it looks from below. Not a trivial problem.

This problem was fun! If you are short (like 5'3" or less), getting to the cool, disc jug thing will be a challenge. An enjoyable challenge. Do the SDS!
