Description

A hard start leads to some cool movement up a thin crack. After about 30', move into the crack 5' to the left (crux), then move slightly right and to the top, following the crack. Although the gear looks thin, it is a safe lead on gear.

Descent: Rappel from rings off the south face of the buttress, which are over near the toe of the next step. 60m rope makes it down.

Location

1st left leaning crack left of Skyline Start.

Protection

Mostly small gear; micro cams and small nuts, a few hand and finger sized pieces. Build an anchor on the step where crack finishes (to TR, 3-4" gear anchor) or continue up the 5.easy 15' step to top of Skyline P1 and sling a boulder/clip the fixed anchor for Skyline chimney descent.

Quite safe lead! No need for special gear either. Jun 26, 2017
