Description

A clean cut, blank corner marks the beginning of this climb, false step or slip and kiss your shin good-bye. Begin from the ground and hold on tight or start from a block and step on a little higher. Either way you're looking at a hard to start route with OCD tendencies.

Once you cast off, hang on tight for some great arete climbing with big throws and long moves. Ride the arete, climbing crisp edges mixed with small crimps. Finish a bit mentally and physically drained at a two-bolt anchor.

Location

Skin Graft is the line directly on the arete just right of Perky's Playground.

Protection

Draws for four bolts and an anchor.

Better Purer, and harder start if you start from the ground, rather than the large rock. Nov 14, 2009

Ya definitely meant to be started off the ground thats the first crux. Pretty cool committing on a tiny polished toe while you get your first clip in. Of course your only like 3 feet off the ground but theres that big ol rock right behind your back. Awesome climb. Feb 24, 2010

The description says "left" of perky's playground, but its really around the corner to the right.

This is a great climb, really fun moves hugging the arete. It is well bolted and pretty safe. I'd say the technical crux is just getting to the first bolt. Seems left-arm intensive. Mar 1, 2016
