DescriptionThe only established sport routes are on a rock on the North side of the peninsula. There are currently 3 established bolt lines, but other sections can be top-roped with a 10 foot sling. There are also a few bouldering routes.
Schist is the name of the game, and the rock is quite loose in some areas.
Having climbing on all sides of the rock, you will find the sun beating down somewhere on the rock unless it's foggy out.
If you're crazy, you can walk off this rock to the South following the Seagull Arete. Otherwise rappelling off the top bolts is your best bet.
The best route on the wall is definately Blue Heron (5.10c), though top roping the West side of the rock is also an excellent route.
