Description [Suggest Change]

Start Left of a big tree on easy terrain, follow fun mega-jugs along a traverse for 3 or 4 bolts, then up the face to the shiny new chain anchor. Good times! Crux is probably somewhere on the face. Listed as 10b in the Daneshyar guide, but its probably easier than that. Significantly easier than three hour tour.

Location [Suggest Change]

Skipper is currently the only route on the face opposite the side with Three Hour Tour/Swabbe/Salty Dog. Also possible to access the anchor from any of the other routes on the SS Minnow.

Protection [Suggest Change]

7 bolts, and a nice tree to lean on by the second bolt. 2 bolt anchor. There isn't really a great way to make the traverse at the beginning of this super toprope friendly.

A "must do" route if you are at the Minnow. The traverse is a blast and well protected followed by some nice slab climbing. Apr 23, 2016
Best route on the Minnow for sure. Make sure your belayer knows what they are doing once you get onto the slab face. Seen some sketchy catches... Apr 25, 2016

As always, the Tree is On for a fantastic no-hands rest/bolt clipping position. May 14, 2018
