Description Suggest change

On the slabby face 25 or so feet left of Skyscraper is a line of 8 bolts with (fading) painted hangers. The first 5 are widely spaced, but there is good protection to be had in incipient cracks and horizontals. The crux section is short and well protected, around the 4th bolt if I remember right. The route veers close to Skyscraper mid-way, but it's a good line -- about as good as they get on the Upper S Curve. NB- Date of FA from Calderone's 2017 BCC guide, which rates this as 5.9+.

Location Suggest change

A 70m rope will get you down from good bolts on top. I don't think a 60m rope will do it, which would mean walking off to the west.

Protection Suggest change

Cams 1 1/2 inches and below, wired nuts, and slings.
