|Straits of Magellan
Guarded by one of the longest approaches at Williamson Rock, the other being Asgard Crag, this is a crag to seek out if you want to get far from the maddening crowd.
The Straits of Magellan are actually two individual crags directly across from one another separated by a narrow gap; routes are found on both sides with the steeper, harder routes on the left (east) and the slabbier, easier routes on the right (west).
The best routes here are The Flying Dutchman (5.11a) and The Southern Cross (5.11b).
Approach as for the The Pyramid, passing along it's east face and then slog uphill along the southern aspect of the Pyramid aiming for the top of the ridge where the Summit Block will be visible off to the left. Once at the top, turn around and enjoy the view before heading down and left for several hundred meters where the crag will come into view. The approach takes 15 minutes or so from the Pyramid and about 45-60 minutes from the closest parking area.
