Description 

Just right of Tilman's Arete along the shore of Chapel Pond.

___UPDATE May 2014___ Due to large rack fall the tree previously used for an anchor has been severely damaged. The next closest tree capable of supporting rappelling is several feet back from the edge of the cliff. Knot the rope ends and stay left at the bottom of the wall/corner to ensure your rope reaches the base.

Rappel is on the left/main wall into a small corner/gully, NOT over the water on the unclimbed outer wall. 60m is sufficient.

Getting There 

Follow Chapel Pond's shoreline to Tilman's Arete, continue past Tilman's along the shore for about 1 minute.

Due to recent rock fall, the tree at the top used as an anchor is damaged. Other options exist further back from the cliff's edge.

We found a new two bolt anchor, with rap slings.
