Description

To date (7-1-09) the leftmost route on the Raspberry Wall (don't expect that to last though...). A four-crux sport route w/ some personality, Skynet employs tricky mantles, friction and technical stemming to thwart it's suitors. All bolts are easily clipped from good stances, but be ready to rockclimb in between them!

Location

As of 7-1-09, Skynet is the first route encountered on the Raspberry wall. Starts 3ft to the left of a 7ft tall, free standing rock pillar. The first bolt is high, but is above very easy and secure climbing.

Protection

9 plated steel Powers 5 piece bolts w/ Fixe Plated Steel hangers protect the lead. Two of the same bolts equipped w/ Fixe plated steel Sport Anchors facilitate the descent. In other words, clip 9 times then lower off!

Very nice route. Be prepared to get your slab on. Super good rock. The last bolt is smashed as of 4/20/2014 by rockfall. Not an issue though as it is close to anchor and not scary. Apr 22, 2014

just did this route again for the first time since the FA! Still as fun as I remember, mantle @ 4th bolt prob is the crux in my opinion...but could also be exiting the stemming corner up high, just before the last bolt...hmmmm. My partner today suggested .12a? I'm holding at .11d Aug 21, 2010
