Trying to solve "Castaway".


Start with a (SDS) on the left most edge of the wall. Work your way up while staying left to good but spooky hand and foot holds. Mantel to the top for the finish.

It's an odd feeling line to me. I don't really bother with it all that much.


This is located on the in the center on the west side of the main rock outcrop of Gilligan's Island. To get there, you park in the 2nd parking lot on the west side of the park. Then take the Bluebird Meadow Trail (staying west) and head out to Gilligan's Island.

Once you reach the Island and the trail makes its loop split, you can either continue up towards the big main outcrop while trending westward. In effect, you are then going over the Island to get to the slopes of the north side.

Or you can take the trail split (left) west and wrap around the out skirts of the Island. Once on the north side turn back south and start heading up hill. Make sure that the main outcrop is now on you (left) eastern side. Stay close to the outcrop and you will walk right up to the steep, medium-sized wall. This line is climbs the leftmost side of the wall.


Pads and a spot.

This is a great problem. Probably one of my new favorites at 3 Sisters.

I stumbled upon this today while exploring the park for the first time. I started on the slopey rail down, right, and farther in from the chalk-covered stand start hold. This felt more natural than the crimp rail on the left.
