Description

Following the North End wall to its end rewards you with a few very nice boulder problems. There are a number of basalt-like columns which have fallen off the cliff and form some beautiful dihedrals and cracks. The smooth faces of some of these columns is covered in a smooth brick-red varnish, which looks almost like somone slapped a layer of paint on the wall.

There is one column which is a bit longer and shows evidence of climbing; old pin scars.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

The broken columns are visible from the approach and are at the upper eastern end of the North End group.
