BETA PHOTO: Browns Island pillars overview


This climb is the arete to the left of No Strings Attached. There is a ledge about 15 ft up that traverses across the south face of the south pillar. You start this climb on the east face and move up and left to access the ledge. Take a breather before you move straight up the outside corner. This climb is a little spicy near the top. There are small metal pieces that stick out of the mortar and stone that you can hook with a wired stopper if you feel the need to hang on the rope between the bolts. That's how I bolted this climb on lead. Don't think I would want to whip on them though. Definitely an exciting climb.


Starts on the east face of the south pillar and heads up and left to the outside corner.


All bolts. Maybe bring some wired stoppers with the wire looped out a little from the metal stopper, just in case. Not sure about an anchor but there is an anchor of some sort above No Strings just a few feet to the right.

Cool route! Spicy at the top but a good change of perspective from Manchester vantage point, would not want to take a winger on the last two bolts (rusty). 7 bolts in total. Props to Ed for hanging on those wires when putting this thing up.
