Description 

A Hinckley Classic. Start on slab, move slightly right to a face, then slightly back left to an overhanging face. A horizontal leg jam gives you a rest before the difficult finishing moves.

Location 

Facing Sandy Ledges, walk to your right. Go around the corner of the Island. Dunes starts about 25’ right of the corner.

Protection 

Top Rope, long slings needed. One of the longest setups at Whips Ledges, with the challenge of wrestling Greenbriar included. Worth the trouble. If set correctly, Scarpa can be climbed from this anchor.
