Toward the start of Wings of Desire

Description 

One of the all-time great climbs at Skaha. A must-do.

This route follows a seam, crack, and series of features straight up through the gently overhanging wall, to a small alcove beneath a roof. Pull the roof, and you've only got to hang on for a few more meters to the chains.

This route has been lead on gear.

Location 

On the left side of the Great White Wall, just right of Logan's Run and a long ramping corner climb. Begin by stepping rightward off a ledge, then it's straight up from there.

Location
