While public climbing is still legally and enforceably prohibited at Sky Top, there will be LEGAL climbing at Sky Top available starting April 1, 2007. MORE INFO >>>


Fun moves, but the route is very overgrown and needs a good cleaning. With more traffic, this route will clean up well. The crux is up through the dihedral, and is above gear.


Start at an open book that starts above the ground on the right side of an overhang, 15 feet left of Mary.

Pitch 1: Climb the open book and face above to a large ledge (60 feet). Watch out for the shrubbery growing in the dihedral.

Pitch 2: traverse slightly to the left to rappel, or step around right and finish on Mary (60 feet).

Rappel from the top; two raps with a single rope or one rap with a double rope. Rappel stations are new.


Acceptable. A little thin in the crux area, but it's there. Gear-only anchors.
