Description Suggest change

This is the bolted route that shares the starting pitch of Leopard Skin 5.7. The line of new bolts can be seen from the ground.

P1 Start with one of the 2 possible starts for Leopard Skin in a right-facing dihedral/ramp. Clip the first bolt and go left to a small dihedral/ledge instead of right up the crack. (5.9 move getting above the mini-dihedral) Follow the bolts to a traverse under the roof. The moves to the anchor and great belay ledge, are about 5.10a. (120 feet.)

P2 Follow more closely spaced bolts up the face to another belay. (5.8, 70 feet.)

P3 Work up a slab with one small runout (compared to the rest of the route) to a headwall with a crack. Crank through the headwall on the left or right. (5.9, 80 feet.)

P4 Easy juggy face to the top. (5.6, 80 feet.)

Descent: From the top look straight ahead and slightly to climber's right to bolts between a boulder and cliff. Rap 4 times down a gully with a single 60M. The last rap ends on a ledge with a 5.2 downclimb.

Protection Suggest change

All bolts. Bring plenty of extenders, at least two should be double length.
