The Islands Rock Climbing
The Islands are a collection of prominent formations at the extreme southwest end of Sand Rock, past the Pinnacle and Holiday Block. When walking from the Holiday Block there is a short 30 ft slabby section with bolted routes and then it opens up to some really tall climbs maybe around 100 ft. The top of this area can be accessed by following the trail to the right before reaching the short slabs. This will bring you to a corridor where you can climb some easy sections to reach a ledge and then climb through a short chimney to reach the top. There are several bolts at the top you can clip into to help make things safe.
Walk past the south side of the West Side Rock
