Approach If You DareBegin your approach by portaging the Cape Flattery trail.
Once you reach the overlook deck, fix a line down into the salty surf.
Now, like Michael Collins, one member of your party will need stay behind to safeguard your egress.
Once your party is embarked and out of the surf zone, paddle south along the coastline until Fuca Pillar comes into view.
NOTE: The sea cliffs have sweet smoke spots and nice places to drown but few easy
options for ascent while carrying a kayak.
Land on low rocks to the south east side of Fuca Pillar or directly at the base of the SE arete.
AscendFollow the SE arete.
The best no hands rests may be taken by unwelcoming sea birds. Any debate vis-a-vis moral right of way, lead climbing versus nesting, will be resolved with partially digested fish in your face.
BEWARE: Bugs which usually feed on bird leavings will swarm into your clothes in search of good things to eat.
