Description [Suggest Change]

Climb the overhanging arete through the bulges and then balance your way up the slab to the top. Although it's considered a classic, it tends to be less popular with beginners since setting the top rope requires a small, easy free solo to reach the top of the block.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located on the right side of the north face of the Island Block, directly across from Beginners' Face.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Anchor bolts and trees.

This is a very interesting route and also one of the longest and highest at the Rim Road area. It is well worth the effort required to set up a top rope. Top access is via Rigging Route or Alt Access, down the alley on the SW corner of Island Block. Aug 22, 2017
