Isles In The Sky is the foreboding-looking formation southwest of the Split Rocks parking area. The slightly overhanging Bird Of Fire (5.10a) is the prime line here.
From the Split Rocks parking area, hike SW along trail for approximately 3/4 mile. The Isles in the Sky formation is the largest of the formations and lies west of Rubicon. Some 3rd/4th class scrambling is involved in getting to the large ledge at the base of the routes.
