THE WALL OF EARLY MORNING FLIGHT

 

The Wall of Early Morning Flight is probably reached most easily from Northeast Point. Take the Lighthouse Footpath as it curves westward and parallels the north bluff rim towards the Spot Bay area. Pass the No Problem Mon cairn and continue about another 150 yards until the trail comes to within 50 feet or so of the Bluff edge. There is a red painted DOS Marker near the Bluff edge at this site which also marks the location of these climbs. These are quite high quality, sporty climbs on generally smooth, pocketed yet steep terrain.

1.) Turtles all the Way Down, 11d, 1/9/2. Dicey and steep. Located at the DOS marker.

2.) Neon Goby, 12a, 2/17/2. Very steep and overhanging.

3.) Tune-A-Fish, 12+, 2/15/2.

4.) Hot Tuna, 12a, 2/8/2. *Ti top anchors only….. careful !! Lower anchors are in a cave. (Grenard)
