Description

The left side of OW has a huge boulder that provides access to a couple of routes on the left. Skills is the second or third of these.

My notes from 1998 indicate a funky first clip followed by powerful steep climbing on excellent stone. A nasty little note suggests that I should get my tail back up here and get a clean redpoint ("straightforward, just pumpy. Do it."). Bob also has a pair of more moderate routes on the right side of OW that were terrific as well. As I recall, Skills seemed pretty long and did not offer much rest.

Protection

Eight to ten draws and a rope.

Ditto. Solid at the grade. Doesn't appear to see much traffic as there was a bunch of choss I broke off and the route was really dirty. After a bit of cleaning, the route turned into a masterpiece. This route is in dire need of a bolt upgrade. You may find the route a bit old school, both in climbing and bolt spacing, but it's a good one for sure. If you're not very solid at the grade, I would bring a cam for the middle section which is runout but easy climbing.... Jun 29, 2015

Believe the description. THIN crux just above midway, then little rest afterward. Great line, solid for the grade. Aug 25, 2008
