Description 

start to the right as far as you can go before the drop into the water, sit start & work your way around the arrete along the little roof and around the corner where you pull to a mantle top out..a pumpy route that has an awesome finger jam. The crux lies on the roof as you have to fall into an over head matched crimp

Location 

It is located in the middle along the cliff between the beach and the light house, on the point of an outcropping of cliff. Easy access is found by following the trail down along the side of this outcropping.

People have been climbing here for decades. There are no unclimbed lines at Fort Williams. Don't try and claim the FA, op.


Also, most of this rock is hollow / crumbly, just stay off it.

Hahaha, it's not that bad actually. But yes it's all been climbed.
