Okay, so I kind of take back what I said: the last clip isn't actually SCARY. It's slightly awkward, but even if you blow it with gobs of slack out, your fall will be pleasant, albeit big.

This route evinces the concept of "redpoint-heartbreak".

So fun. Mar 24, 2013

To further already shattered egos out there, Pro Skill was rated 12c for many years. I always called it 12c/13b. May 22, 2013

My current approach to this route includes skipping the last clip altogether. That way I can focus on just the climbing. A few other guys do this, too. I think it was the only way I could redpoint, since you HAVE to be fresh on the undercling move, and fuddling with the clip wastes precious juice. Oct 6, 2013

There is a semi-popular link-up - No Skill. Climb most of Old Pro Skill cut over to the Chips outro jugs. Skips the cruxes of both routes. 12b/c? Oct 21, 2014

Sounds like somebody's using the old pro skill on him and my man's fallin' for it. Nov 4, 2014
