Description

Make some face moves past a bolt into a left-facing flake, climb that to it's end and finish with some easier face climbing to the top. Descend off the right side of the formation. Fun climbing on good rock merit two stars out of five.

  • Originally done without any bolts; the bolt was added later by another party believing they were doing the first ascent.

Location

This route is located on the west face of a large block that sits down and right from the main Gilligan's Island crag.

Protection

One bolt (3/8"), gear to 3 inches

Well I certainly found the descent long and tedious too! Took much longer than doing the climb.
But the climbing was nice. Miramontes says standard rack, in J tree, I usually take that to mean up to 3"; I took a #3 and a #4 and used both. Mar 11, 2017
Pretty fun. An anchor on this formation would be nice as getting down is long and tedious. As is, it makes for a nice detour to scramble up and to get to the tall "Mary Ann" slabs up and left of this boulder. Feb 6, 2017

Clean crack with interesting transitional moves. Nice line for any area, just so happens to be Lovey too. Feb 8, 2014
