DescriptionA fun harder variation to start Skyline Arete, or can be done as just a 2 pitch route. It starts on the north side of the buttress, just to the left of the start of skyline:
p1 - starts on a flake leading up to a handcrack, follow the handcrack until you are above a small tree, then step right to another handcrack and top out on the same ledge as skyline.
p2 - ascends the slabby bolted face just left of the rap anchors, some gear can be placed on this pitch.
Over all, a great climb with pitch 1 being the money pitch. Can't believe this hadn't been added yet, a fair value 5.9 in the gallatin. Go send it!
