The northwest side of Thatch island has a number of fun deepwater soloing areas. When there isn't north swell, and the wind is moderate or less, it is a great, beautiful, secluded spot to spend the day. The rock is black basalt, with varying quality. More crags as we explore the area...

Getting There 

Take a boat from the east end of STT. This is the closest crag to the boat rentals on STT.

What makes this route so fun is the fact that the crux is down low, and, although continuous, it slowly lets up as you get higher. A great route to push your grade. Starts with a traverse to the right, and then straight up a face. Black basalt. Watch out for a few loose flakes at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
