Mutiny. Fall, 1999.


Mutiny is the obvious, razor-sharp overhanging arete at Pirates' Cove -- only accessible during low water. Boulder up to a high first clip, and continue clipping bolts on the right side of the arete, using holds on both sides, to a crux move near the anchors. The climb is often dirty due to high water, but it is classic nonetheless.


A half dozen draws or so.

Mutiny in May. There boulders below the surface of the water, so not great for DWS.

If you don't have a stick clip, and you have gear...A #3 Camalot fits perfectly where you might want the first bolt to be.

This route is fun and consistent. Stay on the arete for full value, the face holds near the top suck anyway.

I love arete's go left at top. straight up variation is pretty hard slab climbing. I think it goes at 5.12b. I hate slabs.

The intended line goes straight up the slab to the anchors, which is 5.11c or d depending upon who you ask. Certainly not 12b. Skipping the crux makes the route quite a bit easier since it's pretty much fluff until you hit the slab.
