Description

An OK climb with OK rock. It starts off a little chossy but improves quickly. After passing a short band of softer rock (crux) at mid-route the rock quickly improves to bomber. The climb is a wide crack in a left-leaning, left-ward hooking corner that leads to the summit ridge of Ridge 2 in Skunk Canyon.
You can do this as a single pitch with a 60 or 70M rope.

Location

Go up the back side of Ridge 2 passing the bolted routes such as Doric Dihedral, Watchmaker Steady and Beware the Future. Continue for perhaps 100+ meters and stay back from the cliff line somewhat so as to be able to spot a large, left-facing, corner system. At the bottom, it will be less obvious and appear more like a system of flakes. Carefully climb these to gain the corner system and continue up and left to the ridge, finishing about 20 meters south of the lowest downclimb gully.

Protection

Large gear and long slings plus a standard light rack of cams. The climb is mostly mellow, so not a lot is necessary. A vary large boulder is on top at the ridge- this is a great belay.
