Difficult traverse up from the lower section brings you to a nice ledge. Thin holds turn to jugs over the roof.

Follow the weakest line up and through the teal streak for the top out, or jump in for a swim if it's warm.

There's a line that cuts up more directly and left after the first roof. Need to get back and give that a go!


Take Sam's traverse in from the right side access gully. A fixed rope down the access gully is a good idea.

This line is distinct from Beach Party (although it crosses that route as it cuts right) and does not have bolts. It essentially traverses the right side of the cliff, starting from the corner under Beast of the Bog and slowly moving up and right following the path of least resistance.

NOTE that there is a big log 4 feet below the water near beach party, so it's a bold route with a real free solo mentality.
