Skippin' Stones starts just right of Quartz Sports on a nice face below a large-ish overhang. The whole route is easier than it looks. Follow 5 bolts up the face (5.9) to a good shake under the 45 degree roof. Get started under the roof and twist through the crux at bolt 7. Use some monstrous jugs to finish the overhang (.10) and hit the anchor.

This route features a high concentration of steel (more bolts than I usually place, especially through the roof...), so it feels super safe, but still quite fun. It should be a good warm-up for the harder routes on The Crystal Tower and will clean up nicely with traffic.


9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor, 65'.
