The south face. Route called Pilate, V1 (hb).

Description 

The lone chunk of rock separated from the Traverse Wall. I could only choose one rating, so I went with the V0. That describes most of the problems here. There are a few harder problems. A traverse to the left starting between The Island and the Main Wall all the way around includes some V2 moves.

This has a good, easy, highball on the downhill side and some nice, crimpy climbs on the uphill side. An easy walk down on the north side makes this a great rock.

Location 

This is at the far end of the Swan Mountain Traverse Wall.

I believe the traverse around the Island goes at around V3 on account of the exceptional slickness of the crux holds. Mind the rocky landing.
