Description

This is the offwidth flake just to the left of Skull (start at the same place). Contrary to the guide topo, there's no rappel descent at the top of the climb -- after the 30 (?) feet of offwidth, step right and do the last 15 feet of the first pitch of Skull to a sling anchor. When I was there, a healthy, fat, white rat watched my thrutchings from inside the crack as it scrambled around on various bones + vertebra is had collected inside. You can toprope this climb from the 1st pitch anchor on Skull if you add a directional at the top of the flake (#3 Camalot or bigger?). The thrashing is over relatively quickly on this one, but still seemed like plenty of work!

Protection

A couple big pieces is nice (one #6 Friend for scardies like me, but you don't need doubles) and a couple hand size pieces for the finish on Skull.

It is really elegant for an OW, about the most fun you'll have with your pants on (make sure to wear pants!) I never found the "good jams" the guidebook talks about, plenty of fist stacks though. Do this route, it rules. Oct 14, 2002
