Description

This route shares the start of Skunk Boy and then veers up and left. Skunk Boy sounded like a superhero to me, so this is his sidekick, Stinky....
I think this route is actually better than Skunk Boy, but I can't seem to get anyone else to climb it. Begin on the first 4 bolts of Skunk Boy, but get the pocket by the 4th with your right hand this time. Clip and head up and left via a series of cool moves. You will get to a rest that's right by a big chimney filled with bat and mouse shit (another reason for the name). Find a hidden undercling for your left hand and clip the bolt high above your head on the bulge. The crux sequence in the bulge is awesome and it includes a big throw to a ledge off of tiny holds. From the ledge climb up and right to the anchors of Skunk Boy. Go out and try this one. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

7 bolts, closed cold shut anchors
