Description

A 7m or so high over-hanging rock coming directly out of the lake. It is about 1/2 way down the northern/eastern arm of the lake, and is fairly obviously visible just past the narrows around the easternmost of the two islands on the lake.

There are other, smaller, rocks to the right and left of this one, several have possible climbs on them as well, though the rock isn't as clean.

Access issues inherited from Lac Sam

Approach

Boat.

New routes welcome. Please document them on the crag.

Bolting fine; rap-bolting fine. Please bolt for safe sport or mixed routes. If a route is almost completely bolted, bolt it as sport, rather than leaving a small number of gear placements as needed.

If something has been climbed on gear, please don't retro-bolt without FA's consent.

Grade Route
1
V0- One Move Mantle DWS 1m

To the left of the cliff is a small, flat-topped rock with a seam at the front. Grab and mantle out of the water.

(Protection a bit thin when water level is low -- this is a spring problem. )

2
V0+ Low Traverse DWS

There is a series of solid hand-holds and edges running from the left-side of the front of the main rock to almost the right side. It can be traversed in either direction -- feet are generally just above water level for the traverse, and hands are generallly 1-2m above water level.

The traverse is about 4m long, but the "height" is probably not more than 2m.

3

About 1.5m left of the obvious curving crack is a smaller series of holds and irregularities leading up to the top of the main boulder.

4
V6 Main Crack DWS 7m

On the face of the boulder is an obvious curving crack leading upwards. Climb this until it thins out, then pull over the bulge as the rock smooths out and holds disappear.

5
V0- Right wall - left DWS 4m

There is a smaller face just to the right of the main boulder, that doesn't go as high and is just slightly less than vertical. Climb this face, starting in the center and heading mostly straight upwards or a bit left.

6

Start in the center of the right wall, but trending rightwards, half in the lichen.

7

The right wall has an arrete at the right side of it, as it turns again to be more parallel to the shore. Climb the arete.

8

Start at the right end of the front of the rock to the right, and establish on the crack that breaks the edge. Traverse rising up and right with hands on or around the edge between the overhang and slab, and feet on the overhanging section.

9

Runs parallel to, but above, the previous route: traverse with feet along the edge between the overhang and the slab, mostly on the slab.
