Unknown boulder... I'm calling it The Schooner for...


There are only a couple established lines on this boulder with a potential for more. It is still quite dirty, but some more ascents should clean it up nice. I have no idea what this boulder is called, or the problems' names, so I'm calling it The Schooner for now to avoid using "unknown" over and over. Please tell me if you know this boulder's proper (and assuredly better) name, and I will change it ASAP.

Getting There 

Walk around Gilligan's Island through the corridor, keeping Pirate's Cove on your left and The Lost Boulder on your right, as if heading to The Black Pearl. Instead of heading down and left to the Pearl, however, head right towards the Basics of Plundering Area and you will run right into this one.

Yeah, this is a fun boulder and one I usually end at when climbing in the area. Really good height even though all of the jug holds are insanely sharp for even 3-Sisters' standards.

Also, good variation is going straight up from the jug, but it is also really dirty.
