Description

This description is second hand from stories told by my buddy Ted's Dad, who climbed this way back when. Anyway, as he tells it-

Start from the water up the blocky main arete, and follow a natural route up the cliff to the top.

A fun and committing full day climb, move from ledge system to ledge system, working up the vertical sections between.

Beware of loose rock, pro may be devious at times.

Climbing rock at Kineo is a real adventure. Have fun and be safe.

Location

Starting out of the boat, step onto the blocky Arete of the main face, and work up, following the natural lines.

To descend cut climber's left along the cliff top, till parallel to the main golf course, then angle 45 degrees off the cliff and in to reach the major hiking trail which leads to the summit.

Protection

Trad rack.
