Description Suggest change

Skittles Boulder

Start low (sit start) on the right with right hand on a sloper and left hand on the good positive edge. Follow the angling edge of the north face of the boulder to the summit and top out.  The FA didn't top out, but downclimbed the left arete.  Subsequent ascents topped out. 

Variation 1: Skittles Direct V1.  Begin on a tight three finger pocket and edge of the arete instead of all on the arete.  Same finish.

Variation 2: Shark Size, aka Are There Any Skittles Left V0. Sit start on the left arete and follow it to the top. 

Location Suggest change

Skittles Boulder

This problem can be described as either the north face of the boulder directly downhill from the route Scarecrow or the north face of the boulder immediately west and slightly downhill of the Black Magic Arete boulder. Scramble off the back.
