Description Suggest change

Skyline Arete is a complex series of cliffs bordered by steep brush and gullies, located west of the Main Wall. The most-visited crags are those accessible from above (near Powerline and Orange), such as Friction Slab. The main arete is larger but difficult to access.

Getting There Suggest change

From above, the approach involves a couple rappels, and is not recommended. Trails lead up and left from the Main Wall trail (off trail 247), including some scrambling.
