Description

Skidmarks is the next route left from Short and Stupid on the right side of Pistol Whipped Wall. A 50ft. left-facing corner that starts out as thin tip liebacking to a bulging lieback crux (short-lived), to some fun moves up flakes with the occassional hand jam. The flakes look pretty thin, but they're fairly solid. Just don't place any gear behind them, get it down in the crack. A good warmup or just a fun little pitch to set up for lots of people to do along with Short and Stupid. Slings on the anchor should probably be replaced.

Protection

I used 2 .5in. cams, 2 .75in. cams one .75camalot, and 1 #1 camalot. Could take a couple extra .5/.75 in. pieces and maybe one .4in. piece for the start.
