Black Basalt sea cliffs sheared off perpendicular to shore. Basically, this makes for some of the most dramatic DWS around. Much of the face is unclimbable (at least as far as I can imagine), but Bumpa Crack is center stage.

Getting There 

Boat, 10 minutes west of Hull Bay. Conditions have to be suuuuper calm to get a boat in here. No anchorage...someone has to be in the boat at all times.

Climbing Season

Weather station 2.9 miles from here

This is NOT a trad climb, but a classic DWS! Diagonal hand crack for 1st two-thirds of climb, then things get interesting. I have climbed the bottom third, enough to feel like it probably goes in the 5.11 range, but have not completed the climb. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
