The Titanic Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: South Face of the Titanic. Sinbad the Sailor 5.10...
The Titanic is a massive clump with only a handful of routes clustered on its south end. It is notable for the mind-boggling roof crack Castaway
splitting the underside of the boulder leaning against the southeast face. Sinbad the Sailor
is a fabulous fingercrack excursion through three tiers on the face just to the west. Don't Ask, Don't Tell
mixes it up on the southwest face with a funky trad crack to a six-bolt sport face on the vertical wall above. Each of these routes is worth the hike, and doing all three in a day will leave you ready for an evening in the hot tubs down in Desert Hot Springs.
The Titanic is the biggest clump in the middle of the Virgin Islands East, with a large flat-bottomed boulder spanning the gully below the southeast face. Scramble up toward the boulder from the west to access the routes.

This is a fun route. We toproped due to a circuitous line and poor gear at the start. It starts down and left from the Castaway boulder, in an obvious dihedral. Then move right under a big roof, around the corner to a chimney slot. Worm up this to a stance below the final bulge. Climb a finger crack through the bulge to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
