Classic! Start by following the right-angling line of weakness in the center of the face to a stance below the small roof. Pull through the roof to another small stance. Climb up and right through a serious of small holds, then finish towards the left just below the mossy groove.


Island Block, North Side, right in the middle.

Bolts at the top of Island Block from which to drop an anchor right over the climb.

There's an array of anchors at the top of the block. They're a good 15 feet from the edge. The top of this route is friction based, not very good for wet weather.
