Description

An interesting, unkempt romp up the central rib of Sky High Ridge.
P1: Scramble up the left ascent ramp of the Blueberry Ledge to a point where a narrow, sloping ledge leads 2m out onto the Eyebrow Overhang slab. Take the ledge and then climb up sans pro to the top of the slab. Wander up the wooded slope to a belay below the central rib's base.
P2: Climb up a dirty groove, sling a tree then move up and left to a dead-end ramp. Move left onto the sharp arĂȘte and climb it to a deep, 3' tall horizontal crevice.
P3: Climb up the arĂȘte to a lone, scraggly pine tree below a blank slab. Traverse 3m left and climb friable holds up and right to an overhang. Traverse left around this, then back up right to a block leaning on the slab at the top.

Location

This route takes the middle rib of Sky High's triplet ridge.

Protection

Lots of runners, full Adk trad rack, and a wire brush. Be prepared for several long runouts on mild friction slabs, and occasional friable holds.
