Best climbs for YOU in this area
Your opinion of this PAGE:    [0 people like this page.]


The largest part of Flatrock containing the vast majority of climbs including the longer routes and a few two pitch climbs towards the northern end. The area receives morning sun and the temperature can change dramatically without the sun if the wind is blowing.

Getting There 

Park at the pull-off on Wades Lane and walk back along the road to the ATV trail before the houses as in the attached picture. When you meet the main trail cross straight over to a trail down the other side. This trail leads down to some loose rock that you need to scramble down to reach the face which stretches north from the bottom of the trail.

NOTE: The old trail directly above the pull off has recently been marked with private property signs. Please avoid using this trail to prevent potential access issues. The new trail is just as easy, if not a little easier anyway.

This climb is one of the best and longest routes at Main Face. However it is often wet and can only be accessed at low tide by hopping between boulders, or by rappelling in on a fixed line to the starting ledge. Start on a ledge about 8 feet above sea level. Climb a crack on the left end of the ledge, then follow the path of least resistance up and right to a crack in a corner. Climb this crack to a large roof. Pull the roof on the right hand side using a good crack. Easy, blocky climbing then l...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
