Access Issue: Annual Trail Closures to protect Peregrine falcons Details

Description

[NOTE: Apparently the same climb as "Prow" and or "Shark's Tooth right". RHall Admin.]

Coarse rock, stand start on right side of overhanging triangular boulder, and traverse the lip, topping out at the point.

The "Lip Traverse" (right), is a V4 stand start.
There's also a sit start on decent incut crimps, with a heinous heel hook at the beginning.
It is the consensus among locals that the sit start (lowest possible start on the right), definitely adds a number grade to this problem V5 to V5+.

Location

Take the stairs near the bus turn around at the entrance to the parking lot for Echo Lake. Head straight up to the visible boulders as a point of reference. For this climb, go farther up to the right about 100 yards, passing a smaller overhanging triangular roof and proceeding to the larger one.

I think the sit start on this climb is still a V4. Its no where near as hard as climbing out the nose at the Precipice boulders, a concise V5 for the island. May 15, 2018
