Straits of Magellan Rock Climbing
Guarded by one of the longest approaches at Williamson Rock, the other being Asgard Crag
, this is a crag to seek out if you want to get far from the crowds.
The Straits of Magellan
are actually two individual crags directly across from one another separated by a narrow gap; routes are found on both sides with the steeper, harder routes on the left (east) and the slabbier, easier routes on the right (west).
The best routes here are The Flying Dutchman (5.11a) and The Southern Cross
Approach as for the The Pyramid
, passing along it's east face and then slog uphill along the southern aspect of the Pyramid aiming for the top of the ridge where the Summit Block
will be visible off to the left. Once at the top, turn around and enjoy the view before heading down and left for several hundred meters where the crag will come into view. The approach takes 15 minutes or so from the Pyramid and about 45-60 minutes from the closest parking area.
Climbing Season For the Angeles National Forest area.
