To climb Marshall's Strain:

Falling from up high would be painful, but it also is a jumping rock before I ever climbed it. I was jumping off it a lot as a kid. This is a tall fun line. Traversing left from the shore into the double crack start makes it more challenging (v3, like v2 if you dont and have a boat drop you @ start at the crack) Begin climbing up and left past two flat jug ledges into some footwork on crimps, this crux is low to the water. Rest is ledge climbing and the top out is an easy rock-over.


Climb up and left, up again, match a crimp and move left into a small left hand edge. Work through the tiny ledges/edges on the grey face. There is a Darth Vader-shaped granite bloc to your left at this point. Grab sidepulls then delicately get high feet. The basalt flake directly above the sidepulls is likely to break. This second leg is more easy, so it makes for a decent climb up to the top. I love the high exposure, on easier holds.
