Start from a big whole in the wall. Move up and left to a some what scary top-out. A good low angle warm-up.


Located on the south side of Gilligan's Island, it's a wall the is on the western side of the southern tip of the Island.

When you arrive at the Island and the trail splits for a loop, head west (left) as if going to the "Three Hour Tour" block.
Once you reach the "Three Hour Tour" boulder, go uphill directly behind the block. You will see a just under vertical wall with a big hole right in the middle.

I did this without knowing the grade, and I would have probably said V2 because of the technical aspect of the moves leading up to the top out. I botched the sequence the first time (almost did this without my pad, thinking it was V0ish, glad I busted it out...), but once I figured out the sequence, it was a bit easier. I think V3 is generous, but you could still call it V3.

Anybody, now the climb that starts low and to the right of this boulder? Use the big hole as a foot once up there, and then move right so a sloper finish? It basically adds a sit start to this climb, nothing harder just longer.

I did this starting from the start of 'Low Tide'. Made it a bit more interesting and a bit harder.

Yeah, starting all the way at the bottom and topping out up and right was really fun.
