Description

Start with both hands in a big in cut jug. Move up and left for a small crimp. Gain a toe or heel hook in the starting hold and push high above your head to another crimp. Work up into a shallow corner/scoop via sloping crimps. Once you are over the overhang exit right and walk off.

Classic!!! A must do on the south side of the Island!!

Location

This is located on the south side of Gilligan's Island. This line is on the wall up and north of the 1st obvious boulder that houses the "Ship's Prow." This line can also be identified by a shade tree that shares its perch.

Protection

Pads and a spot.
Great climb, crazy right foot jam (heel-toe cam?) in the start hold got me to the top.

Climbed today, the holds are in great condition. There is still a boulder that rattles around behind the top out hold. Makes it seem kinda sketchy, like the top out formation is hollow.

One of the best problems in the park at the grade. Very cool movement. The top flake/block of this climb is mostly detached from the main boulder, but it feels solid for now. You kinda have to bear hug it to top out though. Would be 4 stars but for the somewhat questionable quality of the rock at the topout. May 15, 2016

Hey Daniel, I am not sure about a break, but I climbed the problem today and did a heel/toe cam (I have big feet), and it worked brilliantly. If your feet are too small for this, try simply toe hooking up and to the left of the starting hold. In other news, what an awesome climb! Mar 3, 2013
Did a hold break on this? Right where I wanna put my heel for the key heel hook, there is an obvious "breakage" and even a tick mark by it. Im just new to the area so dunno if there used to be something there, or if it was always like this. Jan 27, 2013

Hey Josh, I know that Luke and Jim and their whole crew put up tons of problems a long time ago ('90s maybe), but Luke didn't post any of these until 2009. Nov 25, 2012

Sorry but I have to ask...is this another 2009 first ascent? I doubt this boulder, which lies 200 yards from the parking lot, was still waiting for a first ascent in 2009. People have been climbing at Three Sisters for probably at least 20 years.

Does anyone know the history of this boulder previous to 2009? May 19, 2010

Scary top out until you realize the block is solid on top. I think it's classic for its consistency. 4 stars. May 8, 2010

I wouldn't go as far to say this is a classic, but it was fun.
We tried hard to get that block off as well, but could not. Apr 17, 2010

This problem kicked ass, but there is a loose block on the top of the prow. I tried to topout on the prow to the left and I pulled on a block and it flexed like crazy. Someone will get hurt on that eventually.

In the beta photo it shows the line going right, and I think this is much safer. Mar 30, 2010
