Per Randall Chapman
: I was out there today, there are signs are up on the fence now, and it is official, Cabin Wall and the Island are closed. I noticed today that the fence doesn't extend very far past the parking area but according to the Delta County GIS map, The Island is also on their property, and the wording in their sign indicates they intend it to be closed.
I have no idea what this climb is called, but if you know the name of it, let me know. Work your way up the dihedral with some feet to a stance below a steep section of crack looming above you. Fire out some burly moves in the overhanging tips crack to a jug. There are new shiny bolts up top.
Note that the bottom of this route is a little loose. I have climbed this route a few times and one time a ledge for a foothold near the bottom broke. Another time we trundled a huge block off of the top of the route that was marked with chalk Xs. Anyways it would probably be a good idea for the belayer to have a helmet. This route is short but very powerful. Definitely a finger-size dependent crack.
This route is the route to the left of four wheel drive by about 150 feet. It is a very obvious route as you are walking along, because the bolts are easy to see.
BD #0.75s for the bottom, maybe three of them and possibly one #1. For the upper section I used a #0.2 or small purple Mastercam-sized piece and then three #0.3 BD-sized cams.
Lower on the route.
Terry sticking it.
