Start (SDS) on a nice jug. Pull up and move left to another good hold. Reset your feet and reach up with your right to really cool pinch. Then push up to a thin diagonal gash/crimp with your left. Finish on good holds above. Walk off to the right and then down climb a short gully back to your pads.
This line may not be for every one, but I just love the moves. And the pinch in the middle of this slightly over hanging wall is cool. It's short but sweet.
It is located on the in the center on the west side of the main rock outcrop of Gilligan's Island. To get there, you park in the 2nd parking lot on the west side of the park. Then take the Bluebird Meadow Trail (staying west), and head out to Gilligan's Island.
Once you reach the Island and the trail makes its loop split, you can either continue up towards the big main outcrop while trending westward. In effect, you are then going over the Island to get to the slopes of the north side.
Or you can take the trail split (left) west and wrap around the out skirts of the Island. Once on the north side turn back south and start heading uphill. Make sure that the main outcrop is now on you (left) eastern side. Stay close to the outcrop, and you will walk right up to the steep, medium-sized wall.
Pads and spotter.
