Access Issue: Williamson Rock is currently closed to climbing. Details

Description

Mantle onto the starting ledge. Use your creativity to gain the prominent "mail slot." Dyno or get fancy to make a very long move to a jug. Most climbers then go right up a series of hard-to-find crimps, and then hand traverse back left to clip the anchors.

Location

On the downstream side of the formation, the line can be identified by the starting ledge and the prominent mail-slot feature above.

Protection

3 bolts to sport shuts.

It is possible to climb straight up after grabbing the Jug, crimpy with long reaches it helps to be tall doing it that way (which I am not). Although I've never accomplished it I've seen it done by a taller partner. Mar 19, 2007

Short but engaging with, as noted, two different ways to do the crux. If you're taller it's not hard to lock off and make the necessary reach to good holds; the dyno/throw is actually easier, just more comitting. Mar 19, 2007

I use a drop knee and stand up out of it with a deadpoint at the last second to the jug Mar 19, 2007
