Description

First, heck, this route may not a FA, but we named it because we are unaware of a different name. So, if it is your route, pardon us. Second, this little adventure is sort of an accident as we tried to find Enchanted Devil. Third, it doesn't match the description of 666. Fourth, beware of trying to figure out which is the 3rd or 4th sections. Nonetheless, it was fun, it summits, the views are nice, the rock is generally pretty good.

When the bird closures lift, head up Skunk Canyon, ascend the gully between Ridge One & Two (best to try to stay more in the middle), go a good way until you are just across from the prominent summit prow of Ridge One or on the 4th section of Ridge Two. The start is a flattish area about 10 feet wide at the bottom of the middle of this slab (it sort of matched the "flat rock" description of Enchanted Devil's start. :o

P1. Head up the middle of this section, slightly left of the flat area, on generally positive edges/scoops. Find pro where you can i.e. sparse. You can find a semi-hanging belay (green/yellow/red Aliens & 0.75 Camalot worked). 195'.

P2. Continue up, trending left slightly at a smoother slab, and belay at a nice ledge (wires & #3 Camalot worked). 185'.

P3. Continue up the slab to the summit. ~100'.

Descent - head West through a slot & find a nice ramp traversing off North. 4th class. ~80'.

Location

This route is located on the East face of the 4th section of Ridge Two of Skunk Canyon. It goes up the middle of the slab vs the left arete for 666. The approach on a hot day can take over an hour. Beware of poison ivy.

Protection

Light rack of wires, cams to #4 Camalot worked.
