Description Suggest change

"Poop Deck" is a short toprope (or potentially highball) route on Gilligan's Island, which follows an overhanging arete.

A few easy moves quickly lead to a reachy, tricky, roof problem just a couple meters off the ground. Mind your rope carefully through this section. After pulling through the roof, a lieback leads to technical smears and crimpers up the bulging prow. The difficulty eases considerably upon reaching the top of the bulge.

The grade is approximate, and a consensus rating has yet to be established. Feel free to offer your input.

Location Suggest change

Just a few meters right of Fearless Man lies a short, vertical rock face by the largest pine tree in the vicinity. Poop Deck and Keelhauling (see photo) share a gear anchor at the top.

Protection Suggest change

Build a toprope anchor using clean trad-gear placements (a few nuts, hexes, and long slings) near the summit of Gilligan's Island. The top is easily accessible via a short scramble up the south side, or a low 5th-class solo up the crack to the left of Keelhauling. Bring extra cord and extend the anchor to reduce rope drag. Walk off the south side.
