Description

Gilligan's Island is a west-facing, rocky hillside with three seperate crags - Gilligan's Island Crag, Ginger's Face and Mary Ann's Face.

The majority of the routes are moderate cracks and faces with good protection, which makes this a popular area for those wishing to escape the crowds of more popular locales like Echo Rock and Hemingway Buttress. Getting there involves a hike of about a mile, but it's mostly level and on a well-defined trail, which makes it quite easy. Climbable throughout the day/season with morning shade and afternoon sun.

Some of the better climbs here include As The Wind Blows (5.7), Hit It Ethel (5.8), Lovey (5.9), Teddy (5.9), Ape Man Hop (5.10a) and Roomis E. Gloomis (5.10d).

Getting There

Approach, from the parking lot at Key's Corner, as per the Ellsmere Island area, but continue north another 200 meters or so beyond that crag until the crag comes into view; a short approach up the rocky hillside leads to the various crags. The approach takes 20-40 minutes from the parking area depending upon your velocity.

Castaway Spoiler Alert!

The area is named after the televison show of the same name which ran from 1964-1967 and featured seven castaways on a deserted island in the south pacific.

Anyone done the right leaning crack on the nice brown patina wall up above and right of Gilligan's Island? Pretty fun despite some choss, maybe 5.9. Slung a big block on the ledge to rap down. Dec 1, 2017
