DescriptionThis one might be a classic if it was in a better location. It is still a great climb that i might describe as a more difficult take on the style of Lonesome Dove. Hyper technical on-your-feet climbing on edges and indistinct holds leading up the slab. finding the bolts is easy but finding the path between them is often kinda tricky as the route wonders a bit.
Start at the top of the slab/scramble that gives you access top the upper middle section of Triple Corners. There is an anchor here, you should use it.
Climb up the steep sometimes wet groove chimney that leads to a nice ledge at the base of the face that is the meat of Skunks in the Gym. Climb the tricky face wondering a little till your feet are sore and you find your self at a very tricky last couple of moves to get to the anchor. There are a few ways to do it. I still don't know the "right" way, i make it feel pretty hard.
