Climber working on the crux of the route


Once you come upon the face you will want to start on the far left side of the wall. Work your way up and either go right over the dome at the top or work right and go up the side of the dome. The crux of the route is the dome at the end. The lower section is technically but stable. The crux has two options of a small crimp and traverse around the right side of the dome or a committing move to a small crimp over the top of the dome. To get back to the boat, either jump into the water and swim (not advised) or traverse to your left and down climb a shorter face that terminates on a ledge about 3-4 feet off of the water, then just climb or hop into your boat


I recommend using the GPS coordinates. It will be the only side of the large face without boulders under the surface of the water.


A boat for the approach
