Description 

This is a Gear protected link up that starts on The Skewer, Climbs a pretty corner and links up to the second half of Gunboat Diplomacy.

Basically climb 2 bolts on the Skewer move left around the corner in to a nice corner with a seam running up it. Make a few easy moves before getting to a decent stance where this get blank. Plug in a few small nuts and pull the crux. I did a lunge/dyno to a sloping edge then on to easier holds and bolts on Gunboat to it's anchor.

Shorter folks will have a hard time on crux i think.

Easily TRed after doing Gunboat but use a few directionals.


Location 

Between the two routes in the description.


Protection 

a few small nuts and a micro cam or two and 10 or 12 draws.

I think this is actually a really good route, but it seldom gets done since you need gear for the corner in the middle. Scott had an eye for good lines. Being tall and limber would help with this. I'm neither, so I thought I was going to split in half while stemming the beautiful orange corner. Even if you are not up for leading, it is definitely worth checking out on TR after doing Gunboat.

I had the first two bolts clipped above the slabby dihedral to start on top rope.
It is a much better start than Gunboat. The start of Skewer is a fun section then finding a way to go up the dihedral is interesting.You've got everything you need for a 5.11c.
