To climb Marshall's Strain:

There is a Darth Vader looking chunk in the middle of the face I use to find the start holds below, this climb I would classify as a little dangerous. Falling from up high would be painful, 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 (v4, like v2 if you dont and start at the crack) and it's a good challenge low to the water. Begin climbing up at two cracks for an easier start.


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.
