Description

This has sunny, windy, secluded craggin' on high-quality BTC granite. I wouldn't be surprised if there are other names out there for this crag, and/or the pitches on it, so my names are only suggestions.

Getting There

This crag is just down and left of Skull Rock. I'm not sure if this should be part of the Skull Rock page, or its own area. Advice appreciated.
Bernard Gillett's guidebook describes a route called Crossbones - 5.8+, on page 187, on a slab down and left of Skull Rock. This is the slab that comprises Subskull's left third. The middle third is a West facing wall with a trio of cracklines. And the right third is a South facing wall with a low, featured overhang on the left and a few cracks on the right.
Sticking with Gillett's approach picture (page 185) seems like the best idea. The trail drawn to Skull Rock crosses beneath Subskull, on its way to Skull, and has Crossbones (#5) marked. 20-30 minutes from the car.
