Another fun climb at skeletal


I had a friend who nicknamed this route "Soiled Shorts" because it became way harder and scarier than it initially looked. Big jugs at the bottom lead to a flake which then leads to a blocky, overhanging face that can leave the first time leader with a definate WTF moment. Do this climb ten times a day for an entire summer and it will get you trained for more serious upper canyon roof pulls.


This route is in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone guidebook and is located right in between Son of a Thousand Fathers and Cokes and Crowbars.


3 quickdraws and closed shut anchors.
