BETA PHOTO: Browns Island climbing overview


A unique climb up the west face ( rt side) using only the metal pieces that stick out of the mortar and stone for pro. Kind of sketchy but there are ample places to loop a wired stopper throughout the climb. You probably don't want to take a leader fall but hanging on them should be ok. Hard to trust something that's been around since the civil war.


This climb is located on the right side of the west face of the north pillar.


Looped wired stoppers on small metal pieces. No anchor above this climb. Move a few feet to the left to find the rappel.
