Ian trying to find his way through Skunk Rub.


This route starts low on a large edge left of the roof and traverses right on the lip using a variety of edges, juggy pockets, and heel hooks. Once you turn the corner, grab a quick rest and head up using the 2-finger pocket. It is a fun, pumpy route.


Walk off the back of the boulder.


A crashpad for the finish is helpful.

Crux is right at the end. This traverse is well worth the time and effort you'll spend wiring it.

Awesome route. Great movement and a bit pumpy for me. This is a must do if you are in the area.
