Description

Difficult and balancy face climbing is to be found on the challenging line, with the hardest moves passing the left side of a small roof/overlap via some sidepulls. Higher, the difficulties ease and moderate face climbing leads to the top. Gear belay and walk off to the climber's right. Two, maybe three, stars out of five.

Location

This, the longest route on the Gilligan's Island Crag, take a direct line up the prow of the formation, and is situated between River Phoenix (5.9) on the left and Lovey (aka Whale of a Time) on the right.

Protection

5 bolts (5/16"), gear to 2.5" for anchors

The name (actually Roomis Igloomis) is that of a rare tropical disease from the televison series Gilligan's Island's "The Postman Cometh" episode. Mar 12, 2007
A good line, but relatively serious between the second and third bolt. Definite groundfall potential. Nov 14, 2007

This is a hard route, basically start to finish. Opening moves are an eye-opener. Highsteps, libacking, smearing, basically kinda insecure the bulk of the way. Feb 8, 2014

Engaging route. Good movement on solid rock.
As Susan said, this one really makes you dip into your bag of slab/face/arete tricks. Feb 10, 2014
These are old buttonhead bolts. Not the most confidence-inspiring. 1 day ago
