Description

This pitch is great, with varied crack climbing cruxes on great stone. Steeper than it looks.

Location

Subskull is made up of three distinct sections:
-The left (West) section is a south facing slab with Crossbones (5.8+ - a left-facing, left-leaning flake system) on its right side.
-The middle section faces West and has 3 obvious cracklines on its steep wall. The Middle Man is......the one in the middle.
-The right (East) section is a south facing wall with a low, featured overhang on its left, and a few cracklines on its right.

Start The Middle Man on the rock ramp beneath the West face. Climb the weakness through the initial, steep headwall that is most directly beneath the middle crackline. Continue your business with The Middle Man to its logical ending.......the top.

Protection

This protects well with a full single rack from a #3 Camalot down to small RPs/Offsets. Build a gear anchor. Walk off up and right.

Started with the first two bolts of Salonpas which is nicer climbing and makes for a longer route. Jan 26, 2016
