Description

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. 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. There are a lot of ways to do this route, the easiest is around 10c.

Location

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.

One of the best lines at the cliff. Not nearly as dirty as the description indicates. In fact, some of the best rock at the cliff on most of the route. Great variety of movement in a short route. Great warmup once you know the moves.

The start can be done two ways:
1. Up to shelf and then traversing left.
2. Direct to good holds using small edges and pocket.

Pretty much the same difficulty either way. Jul 10, 2017
