  • Description 

    Cheekbone is a traditional route area with multipitches and a few classic single pitch routes. Despite the traditional nature of the area, there are two classic 2 pitch bolted routes.

    Getting There 

    This area is located high in the boulderfield and is comprised of the large vertical rock band on the left of Cochrane lane that you can see from the Farmer's field. The Granite Planet arête is obvious from far.
