Description

Skinny Legs is the epitome of power endurance climbing. The line consists of twenty agressive moves without a single resting hold and takes you straight up the 35 degree angle wall. The hand hold selection is one of the coolest around, highlighted by slopey pinches and two finger pockets. The hardest moves are at the second bolt, but you may not notice since the route is so consistently difficult. One last boulder problem, revolving around a demoralizing sloper, guards the anchor. Clip the anchor from a right hand edge just below the lip of the boulder. The route is quite condition dependent so do it during those two good weeks of weather we get each year. The route gets morning Shade.
