BETA PHOTO: Emerald Isle, 12b***, from the belay ledge.


Emerald Isle ascends an awesome green arete that is quite visible from the highway. Start with a tricky sequence to gain the arete before clipping the second bolt. From here, the climbing is sustained, compression, arete climbing on excellent stone for the next 3 bolts. Once you reach the crack, climb up and left along the crack to reach the anchor.


This route is located on a mini-cliff on the way up to The Keep. After the waterfall/cliff in the gully, cross to the left side of the gully, and traverse across to reach the base of the climb. Some easy 5th-class takes you from a tree to the base which is equipped with a belay bolt on the mossy ledge.


5 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor.
