The Pirate Cove is downhill from the Tick Farm, but best approached by walking just west of the steep approach to the main area. The Cove is small, gets more shade than the main walls and offers secluded climbing on steep, thin walls.
Instead of taking the steep trail to the main area, walk just west, like you're going to Pie for Strength. A grass ramp starts on your right within 30 seconds of leaving the trail intersection. One minute walk up the ramp and you're there.

It's a crimpfest with two cruxy sections to a big ledge, above which finishes with some tricky 10b/c climbing to double-ring anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in MT
