Lankin Dome, drect south buttress, Sky Route

Lankin Dome; Direct South Buttress. The classic of it’s length and grade in Wyoming. 

1st a short 5.5 right facing corner to bolt anchor. 

Pitch 2: 5.6 run out slab to a crystal hole belay. 

3: 5.7 slab near a white dike to slab ledge.

4: 5.8 up face crystals on right side of black water groove. 

5:  5.5 slab/face pitch with hard to find anchors in a scoop, with steep, red colored rock above.

6: steep prow right of belay in that steep red rock. 5.7

7: last pitch with a 5.6 option up and left or a direct 5.9+ above the belay. 

Summit, water filled pot holes, classic.

Location

Directly up the South Buttress. Look for small right facing corner to start and a short but blackest of 3 water grooves at 1/2 height. The 3 black water groves are obvious from down in Lankin Gap. They indicate the route from below.

Protection

A free stance, lead established route. Mostly bolted face so a very light rack, maybe 3-4 small to medium cams and quickdraws and locking biners. Bolted belays, except for summit.
