While public climbing is still legally and enforceably prohibited at Sky Top, you may climb LEGALLY at Sky Top as a guided client, since 2007. MORE INFO >>>


History: Fritz Wiessner needs no introduction. William ("Bill") Shockley, perhaps more famous in climbing circles for the FA of "Shockley's Ceiling" in the Trapps, would be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for the co-invention of the transistor.

P1 - Climb the "nose" of the prow into the alcove (pitons). Make an awkward and committing move out left (clearly the crux, seems harder than 5.6) then move back up and right to a belay on fixed wired nuts. 50-60 ft 5.6 (+ ?)

P2 - Climb the beautiful rock up and slightly right (passing a second fixed nuts-anchor) to the top. 5.3-5.4 100-130 ft.


About 100-125 ft right of Gargoyle look for a sharp prow of rock about 20-25 ft high leading to a small "alcove" under an overhang.
