Description

When at the 1st belay on Goldline climb right to and follow the bolt line to the sky line. The first bolt is about 20 feet up and right. After another bolt and about 60 feet you come to a solid double bolt belay. You can climb to this point from the ground via Goldline or other routes that start to the right and share the same 1st belay anchor.

The second half also has about 2 bolts, 20 ft apart. Easy, and slightly spicy 5.2 on a very aesthetic line.

Named Skyline for the old blue climbing ropes in the old days.

Location

Hyperion slab variation on Goldline

Protection

Bolted with bolts 10-30 ft apart.

The first pitch of this route (2nd pitch from the ground) only has 2 bolts but it's real easy. The next pitch to the top has 2 or 3 bolts and is run out but also easy. All the run out spots you can prolly do with no hands. Real fun route. Jan 23, 2011

Returned to this route today for a 20th Anniversary climb. Still a very aesthetic line with most of my original hardware. Feb 10, 2018
