Short but sustained, slightly overhanging. Unusual climbing with lots of sidepulls and arete slaps makes it worth 2 stars.


From the Matterhorn Boulder walk to the nearest part of the Skillsaw Crag. A little gap on your right leads out to an exposed ledge. The route starts from atop a boulder at the north end of the ledge.
