This is another line on the Casual Slabs section of the west face of Ridge One of Skunk Canyon. Its slightly more challenging difficulty makes it feel less likely to be covered by one of the "many variations exist" line in Jason Haas' Climbing Boulder's Flatirons.

Start this climb perhaps 30 feet down from Casual Slabs at a subtle, right-facing dihedral. Scamper up to a short crack through a bulge. Traverse up and leftward (crux) around a plate. Move upward on easier but slightly runout terrain. You can finish with the crack-ish system angling right or more directly up a face (less pro). Once on the crest, protect your second and move left to the Casual Slabs tree and belay.

The simplest descent is probably to downclimb/down lead the route or one of its neighbors.


This is right of Casual Slabs by perhaps 30 feet starting in a subtle, right-facing dihedral.


A light rack to a #4 Camalot works.

Double 48" slings and a #3.5 Camalot can be used for an anchor.

George, a 55m+ rope is probably wise for this given the crest scamper to the tree belay.
