While the climbing is not fantastic, in comparison to other areas around the bay, it is still an amazing feature with fantastic views and worth checking out. Tight rope (5c) is the easiest way up but there is lots of potential lines, if you willing to tough out some choss, fire ants and bush wacking. Don't forget to sign the summit reg in the dry bag at the rap station!
