South Corner Rock Climbing

The South Corner is a smaller rock formation to the north of Blair III. The routes range from 5.6 to 5.11 (9 that I am aware of). It is a little more off the beaten path and well worth a visit.
The more difficult climbs are on the southwest and south sides of the formation. The moderate climbs are on the northeast face.
The descent is on the north end. It is slightly exposed to get to the rap anchor. The anchor is not visible when standing on top. We virtually belly crawled over to them. A 60 meter rope is plenty.
Starting from the Lower Blair parking area follow the trail along the northwest side of Blair III. Once past Blair III, you should be able to see the South Corner. At this point, head north and look for a gully on the southwest side of South Corner. Follow this gully up and you will be on the south end of South Corner.
