I named the route slithering skink because I saw a blue tailed skink the day I sent it and the route wanders a lot. I forgot the adjective and asked my wife what I had been thinking of calling it; her reply is the other name. Dirty skank is fitting because the top of the route seeps a lot and has gotten a lot of dirt washed down on it. This route has three cruxes. The first is transferring from the right ledge into the right facing corner. The second is a high step long reach out left of the corner. The third is moving up the corner from the nice rest ledge.
This route is in the right facing corner just before the trail splits down to the left. There is a large scar and its matching rock at the base of the corner. The route starts right up to the small ledge about 7 feet right of the corner then traverses in just below the first bolt.
