Description

Thought this deserved it's own entry since it only shares the last few moves with the original line. I thought this was a much better and more sustained line - climbs the best part of the original route while skipping the easier climbing before the crux.

Low, distinct crux after clipping the second bolt, then follow thin hands left, hands up and fingers right before meeting up with the crux mantle of the 5.8 original line.

The crack climbing is 5.9-ish. The slab crux is given 10c by Bourdon, but it might be easier if you're 6 feet tall.

Location

On the west wall of Tunnel Rock, following two low bolts (within the first ten feet) into cracks. The (climbers) leftmost line of bolts at the crag.

Protection

2 bolts, then gear from yellow C3 to blue C4. Chains at the top.

Indeed, this route does deserve its own entry. The 2012 guide says the 2 bolts are a direct start to Easy Skankin', but they actually go to a separate crack (it would be rather hard to get to ES from the bolts, actually) that is quite nice. I've added a picture copy to help with the distinction.

I found the start quite hard. Jul 31, 2018
