This is a great route, and deserves more traffic. It can be a bit dirty in parts, but the climbing is interesting and exciting. Climb up easy rock to reach the 3rd bolt. From here, head up and right over a big hole to reach the jugs in the overhang. Pull this first overhang and follow a crack system to the last bolt (crux). From here, keep it together and carefully proceed for another 20 ft to the anchors. You'll go pretty far above the last bolt, but the climbing is much easier above the last bolt.


From the approach gully, head down stream passing the French Wall to the right. Stay close to the rock for the easiest and most traveled approach trail. You will come to an overhanging section of rock with a concentration of sport routes. Skinhead Grin is the 2nd route to the left (it breaks right from Reaches from Hell, 5.11d at the 3rd bolt.)


6 bolts, shuts.
