Sk8tboarding is in the center of the pic between t...


A slightly more vertical slab with pretty straight forward moves. There's a bulge down low and then the crux is the bulge in the middle. To the left is too easy, straight up the bulge is pretty hard and to the right is a bit reachy but interesting on small holds.


Just to the left of Prajapati.


4 bolts and will take pro.

Fun route! Crux for me was gaining the first bolt, especially if the lower slab is damp early in the morning. Bottom bolt hangar rotates a bit but bolts looked otherwise solid. A toaster+ size block/jug near the top that's slightly left of the route but tempting to use came off; I carried it down.
