Climb the arete to a crux midway up the route. Finish on steeper terrain at the top.
Watch your backside if your spittin' off .. there is a large tree there.


Find the side of the Island that faces the Main Wall. The Arete is on the left side of this wall.


Top rope. There is a tree that sets back about 3’ at the top of this route with a chain around it. Place the anchor over the edge in a spot that reduces the possibility of hitting the large tree growing close to the route.


Longest TR ever at 5560'!! I think you meant 55-60'. Jul 20, 2013
The best route at Whipps? I think so. Jul 12, 2010
I am thinking the footage on this climb is wrong, or you need a really long rope to TR it... 5560 feet Jun 2, 2010
