This photo is on the first pitch and is what I believe is being described as the roof /crux (description below). Unless I was in the wrong area this was not the crux. The entire climb was pretty easy. The last pitch was a little run out, but sill there was adequate holds to get past it.<br>

"Head up Skunk Canyon to the base of this ridge (the second ridge) and start climbing up the bottom of the slab heading toward a big roof. The crux is moving left underneath this roof."

I think I climbed up the ramp just above you. I wonder how it compared to this. Jun 3, 2014

I found the ramp above to be not so great - tons of lichen and smooth rock, which made the added feeling of exposure due to being over the lower roof feel a little sketchy soloing. Jun 3, 2015

I think the upper ramp is a better way to go: cleaner rock and adequate pro, which places you higher up the gully above. 7 days ago
