The northwest side of Thatch island has a number of fun deepwater soloing areas. When there isn't north swell, and the wind is moderate or less, it is a great, beautiful, secluded spot to spend the day. The rock is black basalt, with varying quality. More crags as we explore the area...

Getting There 

Take a boat from the east end of STT. This is the closest crag to the boat rentals on STT.
