Description

Sky Pilot is the last big wall on the west end of the Cooks Wall ridge. It's a short hike through the woods downhill from The Fin and can easily be seen through the trees while climbing in The Fin Area. Aside from the warm up route, most of the lines are long and require a good amount of gear.

Getting There

From The Fin, walk the trail head that goes directly into the woods from behind the route Welcome To Cook's. Take this gently downhill trail for 300' to the obvious clearing with a large boulder beneath a 100' wall capped by a roof.
