Description 

Gorgeous overhanging start to high moves. Decent but sharp holds. Crux down low to small holds on easier vertical dihedral. Holds to the left of an obvious but short hand/fist crack aptly named Pissant Overhang 5.11b.


Location 

Whether approaching from the western or eastern side, at the egg landmark, go north 15 yards or so toward the top of the Skyline Wall western approach gulley marked by the giant "balanced egg" boulder. Instead of descending into the steep gulley, look right and see this overhanging gem situated on a small platform with a small outcrop from which part of the Skyline wall can be seen. It's really hard to miss.


Protection 

Two pads recommended, spotter imperative. Landing would be on angled rock.

This route is called Pissant Overhang according to a post on RC.com. www.rockclimbing.com/routes/North_America/United_States/Virg>>>

I don't think its anywhere near V5, just some steep hand/fist jams to start and a cruz to pull through the lip.
