Description

Powerful boulder problem through the roof and arete. Very similar to Atomic Slap. Though the rock is a little ricey, it shouldn't be dismissed. Rock quality would improve with more traffic. Just like other Skinner (or Piana) routes it's a thrilling lead, especially getting to the last bolt. The route did not have anchors before, so I installed some (fall '11) to make it safer and TR possible.

Location

Located on the far right side of the major SW facing corner. Steepest climb of the formation.

Protection

5 Bolts.
Chain anchors. Might want gear for crack in the start, or a stick clip.
