Description

I guess to build a skyscraper you have to have a solid foundation. Skyscraper is all about the start. The fun begins with an off-balance and hard-to-reach clip. This height-dependent crux involves a long reach and delicate balance to work into a stem. Key holds allow the climber to work up while continuing to stem, to reach the second bolt and a large flake on the left. Tenuous moves gain the wall above, where more straightforward climbing leads to the anchor, shared with Bearish. Rappel to descend.

Location

Delancey Rock, center bolt line.

Protection

4 bolts, bolted anchor

A decent route with a boulder problem crux and then much easier climbing above. The upper section is fairly dirty and uninspiring at best. Jul 23, 2010

There was an alternative start to this climb - working up the left seam. Only know of one person to send it that way; it was at least as hard as the crux mentioned in the description, involving some gastons and a high step. Unfortunately, the knob for the high step was recently blown off, leaving nothing. Jul 28, 2009
