The crux is pulling the 3 intimidating bulges 160 feet off the ground. The route is well protected though, and offers great climbing.

The directions here are a little confusing:
"From the parking lot hike up the trail going straight past the boulder. At the split..."
The split is before the boulder.
"... take the right trail (the left goes to Area 13) up the steep hill to the base of the Main Island."
Left and right should be switched here. Area 13 is to the right of the Main Island.
Unless I'm really confused...
