Access Issue: This crag may be on Private Property! Details
The access situation here is a bit murky. According to "Shelf Road Rock", the crag is likely located on state land that is leased to a local rancher. Climbers should treat this area as though it were private property. Keep a low profile, leave your dogs at home, and keep the noise down.
Skank-to-Crank is one of the easier lines at the Great Black North, and after a grope-y start, offers thrilling cranks on stellar sculpted pockets. Begin on the right end of the wall, 3-4 feet from the arete. Struggle up the steep, chossy-looking rock to the small roof. Above this roof the rock quality becomes excellent. Surmount the awkward bulge, passing over/through/around the small tree. Continue up and right on thin crimps to some killer, rounded pockets and jugs, leading back left to intermittent ledges and easier terrain to the chains.
Located on the right side of a NE-facing white wall split by a 3" snaking crack and a prominent recessed roof. The approach trails joins the cliff just right of this route.
Bolts, 2 bolt anchor. Stick Clip highly recommended!
