Justin in the crux
The wildest and most exposed sport pitch around. a quick scramble and 60 feet of 5.6 arete climbing take you to a horizontal break with bail anchors. Take a deep breath, clip the bail anchors for pro, preferably with a long runner, and cruise out 15 feet of richly featured HORIZONTAL ARETE CLIMBING. The prow stays steep for another 15 feet, and then remains vertical to the very top of the beautiful formation. One of so many inspiring Skinner routes.
12 quickdraws and maybe one long runner. Good rings at the top.
You can lower with a 60, but depending on where you stand to belay, knot the end of your rope anyway.
