This is a kind-of direct start to the All Hands on Deck. About 8-10 feet right of the start for the traverse, there is a round right hand dish with a thumbcatch and a left hand crimp in the seam (at about head height.) Hold on tight and paste your feet on and dyno for the lip. Match and finish out the traverse to the nose and mantle.


Tbis is on the North side of the Battleship Boulder.


Pads, spot.

Let me know if this had been done.

Skyland has been in the eyes of local climbers for years and years, and more recently more people have had their eye on it as well. Climbing has occurred on these boulders for at least 20 or so years, before the crash pad was invented even. So, in all likelihood, your route has been climbed long ago. Chalk dissipates from holds quickly, and the growth rate of moss and lichen in the area is astounding. I was pawing around on this problem two days ago and the shit had already returned. Locals have this area down and have developed much of the area save for a couple of secrets that don't make it out of the woods much. First ascents are non-existent for those who don't know the area or the history of what has already been done. Just have fun climbing there, is all you can contend to do.
