Looking up at Skinner's Roof.

Description 

Classic short roof crack. Easy climbing to ringlocks and thin hands over the roof, followed by more easy climbing.

There is high potential for the rope dropping DEEP into the crack if seconding/toproping. Easy walkoff around to the right.


Location 

It is pretty easy to locate this route as you walk through the field to White Lightning. Gradually pick your way up through boulders until you are at the base.


Protection 

Crux is green camalot sized. Above the roof is perfect hands splitter to a very easy (5.6-ish?) offwidth. More hand/thin hand pieces for anchor.

Beautiful natural roof crack- damn hard if you have big hands. If you feel solid on 3 camalot size hand jams, then don't bother.

Onsighted by Todd Skinner for the FA.
