BETA PHOTO: The Blob, first two routes


3+ great routes on a single formation, with relatively high quality rock. Routes are short but sweet. I can't say exactly why, but I really love climbing here. It has become our go-to spot for quick sessions. Water starts are the norm at this spot, and just jump off the top when you are done.

Getting There 

Take a boat. Head to the eastern end of the northwest facing side of thatch. This formation is just around a small point, in a small, sheltered bay.

Climbing Season

What makes this route so fun is the fact that the crux is down low, and, although continuous, it slowly lets up as you get higher. A great route to push your grade. Starts with a traverse to the right, and then straight up a face. Black basalt. Watch out for a few loose flakes at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
