Description Suggest change

A large obvious formation that sits above the Main Meadow that is broken up into several buttresses. Climbs exist on all sides on good quality rock, although somewhat broken up into different blocks.

Getting There Suggest change

To reach The Skull, either remain on the summit trail before heading west across the hillside towards the east face. Or take the same approach as for The Butt, but continue up past and to the base of the formation. 10-15 minutes from the Butt.
