This is THE CHILL ZONE. It is the tall, wide, tilted platform that juts out into the ocean and is visible from afar. When the mobs congeal and the cheerleading begins, you will see why the name is so appropriate. It is very exposed, and thus balmy in summer and blustery in the winter. This area consists of several different sections, starting from the Whale's Head on the right, passing the pyramidal buttress of YumYum Wall, the raised cave of Recital Hall, to the main point of the Music Hall, and on down to the Broken Faces. A vast majority of the routes here are traditional climbs, although most people come here to climb only four routes: the beginner classic Wedding Route, the grade-pusher 79 Finals, the unorthodox Big Drum, and the style-challenging Fingercrack. If you aren't sucked in by the lackadaisical atmosphere, there are many other stellar climbs to be done.
From Schoolgate: Hike along the coast for about 20-25 minutes. Scramble over the boulders in the schoolgate area, pass the ponds and fishing holes until you reach the traverse. You can climb over the traverse or take it directly (easy 5th class), but be mindful of the fall -- it's a good six meters or so onto barely submerged rocks or coral.

Listed as a trad route in the 2012 guidebook, but fully "re"-bolted in 2012 anyway. The line as climbed avoids the corner to the right, and thus solid gear placements are few and far between, making this a heady trad lead. Either way, it's a fun and too-oft-ignored route.On the right side of a clean(ish) buttress, find the bolt about six feet off the ground. Move up this to a thin horizontal and a rightward traverse. You can cheat into the dihedral, but then you would be skipping the physical cr...[more] Browse More Classics in International
