Description

The lower half of the climb consists of a series of blocks and small faces. The upper half of the climb becomes increasingly steep and is overhanging by the time you reach the anchors. The upper route consists of face climbing to the small roof. The climb was intended to then follow the underclings and side pulls to the right and clip the anchors from the small alcove (10.c). However, taller people can clip the anchors from the undercling below the last bolt and skip the short traverse to the alcove (10.a/b). The first move off the mid-climb ledge can be protected by clipping the mid-way anchor (if you do this you'll need 12 draws), although the short move to the bolt is not hard. The route has been cleaned extensively, but there are still loose rocks and helmets are recommended.

Location

The climb ascends the right side of the prominent orange and white face located approximately 30 yards uphill (west) of the Y-Not Wall and a couple hundred yards downhill (east) of Whistle Pigs. The climb starts at the top of a blocky platform approximately 15 feet west of Live to Ski.

Protection

11 bolts and 2 top anchors. Take 12 draws if you intend to clip the mid-way anchor.

There are also mid-way anchors if you only want to do the lower sections of both Live to Ski and Mule Skinner. The climbing to the mid point anchors is 5.8.
