Description 

On the northwest side of Gilligan's Island, Mrs. Howell and Thurston Howell are located kitty-corner to Skipper Boulder on the south side of the Homestead Trail. These two problems can be found as there is a small hole/cave/arch behind them.

Do a SDS off a recognizable pinch. Well-chalked, Thurston Howell climbs the arete of the boulder to a small pine tree.

Protection 

Pads & a spotter.

Fun problem. A good introduction to compression for those who, like myself, climb mainly on horizontal crimps.

The crux is avoiding the tree when topping out.
