BETA PHOTO: Offshoot, from the Left Ski Track anchors


This is a one pitch face climb, starting half way up the rock. Climb pitch 1 (easy) of Left Ski Track. From there, move up and left on exposed, thin face climbing, past two bolts (left of The Chauvinist) and on to the top.


two bolts plus gear for belays

If starting from the Left Ski Track anchors you'll want three draws, as you pass a set of double anchors. You may want a a medium piece or two as well for the chimney at the end.

After the doubles head up and left (bolt directly left is for Sling Swing Traverse) to the first bolt of The Heathen (5.11b). From there continue trending left as the bolt above you is for The Heathen.
