Left of Skyline is a nice face climb that culminates below the 5.12+ Veal Cage. It consists of thin edging up a nice face with a couple of reachy moves. The injury potential is getting to the first bolt as it is not easy climbing to the first bolt, so have a spotter or three. The nice left traverse mixes up the styles nicely on this climb. Do it while waiting for one of the other Morning Glory routes.


3 bolts on the route, 2 bolt anchor, and some small cams or nuts for the finish.

A straight forward slab with the potential of a nasty cheese grader long fall. You can bring small peices to protect between the last bolt and the chains, or you can just bring your's only .10b so they don't need to be that big. A spotter to the first bolt is a smart idea. Sep 9, 2009

Make sure you bring some pro to place before the anchor-- the crux is right before the anchor, and a fall here would bring you pretty close to the ground... Mar 5, 2008
