Description

Start down low on slopers on the right most side of the wall. Move up and right thought the steep bulge via crimps and slopers. Be careful of the looming tree behind your head!! Once up on the low angle slab at the top of the line traverse off left to safety. Great hard line!!

Location

The Tortuga "Widower Wall" is located just behind (North) of the Gilligan's Islands formation. The "Widower Wall" is just left (West) and slightly down hill a bit of the main "South Wall" of the "Tortuga Area."

Protection

Pads and spotters.

By the way...where did these names come from? Are you naming them so they can be better posted on Mountain Project? Perhaps the f.a. party could interject some history here.... May 19, 2010

This is a great line. Going around right is a much less quality variation in my opinion. The version Justin showed me goes up the face left from the good, flat right hand edge on the arete. Really long lock off with a hard left heel hook. Ultra classic but I don't think the X grade is warranted... unless you're spotter's holding a sword and it's pointed up.... May 19, 2010
Felt more like V8 today?? But so good!! This is such an overlooked problem at The Sisters. I forget what gems there are in this hidden little world. I love it, man!! Everyone should check this one out!!!!! Mar 31, 2010

Hey Luke, My name is Justin C. and I think I might have got the FA on this problem along with the one to the left as well. We should get out and climb sometime, I think your doing a great job documenting this place for other climbers! Jul 10, 2009
