Description

The easier left start in the obvious arching undercling flake is far friendlier (AKA: better, obviously this is a matter of opinion) than the direct, Skinner Problem.

Work up and right in the undercling flake untill you can reach up to a right hand edge that is pretty good. Next reach up left to the petrified wood hold, fingers go in a seam and your thumb on the wood. Next surf out right to a kind of terrifying hold, there is a dark circular inclusion with a perfect two finger tooth that you grab, it just seems as though it is going to snap off. Reach left to the top gaining a rounded friendly hold and top out relatively easily.

Location

On the clean upper wall above the Wounded Knee boulder stating from the right arching undercling flake on the left side of the wall.

Protection

Pad and spotter. While not really tall, the landing is only about 4 feet deep and if you happen to tumble back it drops off beyond that.
