Description

Hard but brief, and somewhat heady, face climbing just to the right of Skeletal Ribs. One tricky move off the ground leads to good gear at a horizontal and a very blank face with a bolt. A surprisingly wandering sequence for the length gets you through the 20ft crux. Get some gear in the horizontals above (beware of crumbly rock!) and finish up on easier ground (5.8). Anchors can be found at the top of Skeletal ribs.

Originally bolted on lead by Jon Sykes in 1995. Wasn't freed until 2000!

Location

The face sandwiched between Skeletal Ribs to the left and Scottish Gully to the right.

Protection

One bolt and gear up to 2"

Wow this is hard....I tried TRing this after leading Skeletal. Certainly harder than any 11d I've ever tried. Major props to anyone who has onsighted this. Aug 17, 2015

Would be way hard to onsight but once you figure the moves out its not that bad. The bolt is in a perfect spot to ensure safe falls. The climbing above the "slab" is actually better than it looks from below. Dec 29, 2015
