Description 

The Diamond Head of Micronesia. This is a completely undeveloped basalt monolith that is the pride of Pohnpei. No one has ever climbed the face of Sokehs Rock, though adventurers often make their way up the 5.6, R Skyline Scramble (on the rock's southern side) with the aid of a fixed metal pipe and rope.

Getting There 

Same approach as the Spire, but at the junction to the Spire (on left), proceed up and to the right to a large tree and the beginning of the Skyline Scramble.

Climbing Season

The route is graded 5.3, R unassisted, though there exist ropes and metal pipes to aid climbers. Most of the route is 5.easy but the first two pitches have a couple tricky moves and serious exposure. No one really gears up for this because of the fixed assistance (ropes on traverse pitch and metal pipe on headwall).P1 begins with a 50 ft...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
