It has been a while. Some years in fact since we last dropped a rope on this great spot. A more magnificent setting for a day out climbing I can not imagine.

Just under three miles up – it was a hump with the addition of ropes and a rack but the two seniors made it up OK.

The wind was whipping and right into the cliff face which added to the mountain feel of things.

The view is a full wilderness view. The only thing the eye can find is some tree harvesting boundary from some years ago.  Looking due lease at the back side of Chocoura in the distance the northern limit of the Sandwich range was bathed in full fall color.

We set up on the big shelf at the southern end of the east ledges. One good looking bolt and some gear in a nearby crack allowed us to take turns on a couple of lines on the face.

The granite was clean – probably from being blasted by the elements. Fine face climbing on warm sunny stone – such fun.
